    Dear Community:

    The next monthly session of the Youth/Young Adult Collaborative Outreach Program (YACCOP) will be held Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 10am-2pm.

    This collaborative with Luke C. Moore, ANC 5B02& 5B04 and Guildfield Baptist Church will be held at the Guildfield Missionary Baptist Church (Basement/Sutton Fellowship Hall – 1023 Otis Street, NE).  A flyer is attached; session dates are below.

    Exciting News:  YACCOP is thrilled to announce the expansion of our youth collaborative to now include other committed, youth-focused collaborators within our city.  Under the same youth/young adult umbrella are some of our new partners --  Kaizen Life Skills (Greg Smith, Founder), DC Unique M.O.V.E. (Sabrina Mathis, Founder), DCTV's Teen Youth Summit (w/Tony Randolph).  Of course, the original partners of ANC 5B02, ANC 5B04,  Luke C. Moore SHS and Guildfield Missionary Baptist Church remain ready to serve. 
    Together, we all strive to for the same purpose: to stop complaining and instead help our youth and young adults prepare for their future.  Working together better ensures our efforts for youth translates to heightened success for their future.  Their success is our success; their future is our future.  We have no choice but to work with and for them.... together.
    Please join us on Sat., June 14.  We expect this session to be our best yet; end-of-year and youth directed.   Please join us!! As always... bring youth and young adults with you.

    The Youth/Young Adult Collaborative Outreach Program (YACCOP) is a collaborative partnership. This collaborative partnership functions two-fold:

    COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP #1:  Luke C. Moore, the ANC, its community and Guildfield Baptist Church.  This partnership allows pre-selected Luke C. Moore high school students to earn their required community service credits by tutoring and mentoring their DCPS LCM classmates.  Youth affiliated with  Guildfield Church will also participate.

    COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP #2: Luke C. Moore/ANC 5B02 & 5B04 community/Guildfield Baptist Church.  This partnership allows Luke C. Moore high school students to receive mentoring, tutoring, personal enrichment and life skills help from the immediate community's adult volunteers.  Students need assistance in an array of areas.

    Very kind regards,
    Commissioner Carolyn C. Steptoe

    The Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs) are locally elected bodies which shall advise the Council of the District of Columbia, the Mayor and each executive agency, the Government of the District of Columbia, all independent agencies, boards and commissions with respect to all proposed matters of District of Columbia governmental policy including but not limited to decisions regarding planning, streets, recreation, social service programs, education, health, safety, and sanitation which affect the Commission area.  In each of these areas, the intent of the ANC legislation is to ensure input from an advisory board that is made up of the residents of the neighborhoods that are directly affected by government action. The ANCs are the body of government with the closest official ties to the citizens in a neighborhood.  Commissioners serve without compensation.  See PL 93-198 and DCL 1-21, as amended.
