The official statement from MPD:
You are invited to attend the 6th Annual Youth Opportunity Summit and Town Hall Meeting. This meeting is held to discuss preparing youth to stay safe and avoid criminal behavior, especially after school and during summer vacation. The Metropolitan Police Department will engage youth in an energizing panel discussion followed by breakout workshops topics design by youth for youth.
The panelists will include young adults who made it through their teen years successfully and are now embarking on careers or educational opportunities. Just to name a few confirmed panelists: Markus Batchelor, former DC Youth Mayor and 2011 George Washington University Trachtenberg Scholarship Winner; Chris Wright, Senior, Georgetown University; DJ Rico, Majic 102.3 and other exciting individuals.
Lunch will be served, followed by breakout workshops to further connect youth to positive avenues to stay out of trouble. We are calling on you to bring youth out to this exciting event. The purpose of this yearly event is to provide assistance with engaging youth residents, their parents or guardians in meaningful activities that deter criminal behavior.
