YOUTH ROCK: PtC Hybrid Virtual Program is a Hit
Coronavirus has changed how people live their lives, and that includes how youth engage in summer programs.
Peace thru Culture (PtC) has morphed its PtC Corps Summer program into a hybrid virtual program. The new hybrid virtual program, PtC Discovery Series, includes 12 hands-on projects delivered to the home, interactive online virtual classes and is free to D.C. residents.
Participants of the Discovery Series are having a blast immersing themselves in cultural experiences. PtC Discovery Series exposes youth to the cultures of Hawaii and Morocco through live Hip Hop & Hula Dance class and Yoga, cooking with recipes, and arts projects. Other projects include youth reaching out to their Council Member and sustainable gardening projects.
"We did the DIY vegetable garden, which was very fun to make," one participant said. "We also thought it was cool to see the soil expand. We can’t wait until the veggies come out!"
Stay tuned for recipes and ideas to learn more about Hawaii and Morocco.
