LAYC is delighted to receive congratulatory remarks from Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and the House of Representatives as we celebrate 45 years of service in the community.
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to ask the House of Representatives to join me in congratulating the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) on its 45th anniversary and for its exceptional work with underserved youth in the District of Columbia and the national capital region.
Founded in 1974, LAYC began as a youth and family development center serving Latino youth in the District. Today, LAYC serves all youth at its five sites in the District of Columbia and in Maryland. LAYC continues to be committed to transforming the lives of underserved youth and their families through multicultural, comprehensive, and innovative programs that address the social, academic, and career needs of youths.
We appreciate the LAYC’s long presence in the District and its continued service to our city’s young people. We also wish LAYC continued success for years to come.
Mr. Speaker, I ask the House of Representatives to join me in celebrating the 45th anniversary of the Latin American Youth Center.
