As part of the Youth Empowerment Solutions (YES) program, the young people meet with community leaders to discuss issues they feel are important. On April 29, YES students from Church Without Walls met with U.S. Congressman Dan Kildee.
Congressman Kildee said he came away with a four point agenda after talking with the young people. The first was a need to clean up the blight in their neighborhood, the second was to take illegal guns off the streets, the third was to increase the number of police officers in their neighborhood and the fourth was to provide young people with more opportunities for positive activities.
The YES students would like to thank the Congressman for his concern for their input and look forward to keeping him updated on their community service project.
