When the phone rang one day in 1979 asking her to become a board member…
Good luck to two vibrant young ladies, sisters, Aan’Jayla and Aa’Leeyah Peterson as they head back to school. They volunteered in the Volunteer Services workroom for 2 days a week, and at Carole’s Café for 2 days a week through the Montgomery County YouthWorks summer program.
YouthWorks provides summer employment opportunities for in-school youth ages 14-17, helping to develop fundamental life skills including personal growth, interpersonal relationships, and career development.
The Petersons attend Belmont High School and are cheerleaders. Director of Volunteer Services, Maureen Swarts says, “They are the sweetest girls and work hard! They learned a lot and are a blessing to us!”
We look forward to having them back to volunteer throughout the school year and next summer!
