Harlingen Outreach Center Summer Youth Program took all program participants to spend the morning hours at the park and were then treated to some grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. Program participants had a great time doing different recreational activities at the park such as flag football and soccer. Program participants then returned back to the H.O.C. for more fun indoor recreational activities along with watching a movie. I would like to thank all prevention staff and destiny mentors for all the awesome work that they did all summer long with these youths. Special thank you to Destiny Mentor Robert Castillo for grilling the food and for Probation Officer’s Laura Armijo, Renell Renaud, and Jessica Garcia for taking time from their regular duties assigned to help us set up and feed everyone. We are truly blessed to have an awesome team work together to make things like this happen for our program youths. Thank you ARMY staff for assisting us with an additional van and LIFE/BRAVE Program for additional supervision assistance.
Thank you Margaret Garcia and Melissa Rios for tag teaming all summer long to take the lead and ensuring that the program ran smoothly.
