Sasha Bruce Youthwork, Inc (SBY) in partnership with the Department of Parks and Recreation is providing programs for Southwest and near Southeast community residents beginning on January 6th, 2014. The coming attractions at the community center are a result of a concentrated collaborative effort to bring life to a space that has been vacant for some time.

In tune with the many suggestions and ideas from over 100 community members who attended the November 16th Randall Open House, the new Program Guide offers something for everyone at every age, including SBY established programs, like P.O.W.E.R. (Prevention, Outreach, Wellness, Education and Risk Reduction) for teens.

Registration for the following programs is ongoing on Monday’s from December 16th through January 6th between the hours of 4:00-7:00pm at the Randall Center, located at the corner of South Capitol and I St SW (across from Skyline Hotel): Tot Lot for toddlers 18 months to 3 years; Afterschool Time for youth in grades 3-7; Yoga for Youth and Adults; Teen and Adult Book Clubs; Family Time; Still Life & Figurative Painting for 18 years and up; Kawaii Fashion Art; Oral/Personal History and Video Production; Performing Arts/Drama Club; Screenprinting; Craft Workshops; Chess; and monthly Fitness & Health Workshops. These programs will run until March if appropriate numbers of participants are reached.

Other classes are being added as interest grows at Randall.

To register or for more information, please come to Randall during registration days or email cgraham@sashabruce.org to receive an electronic registration form and have your questions answered. Also, please feel free to call the center at 202-554-6973.

We encourage everyone to register for programs and support our efforts at creating a “bridge” where people come together to learn, have fun, and celebrate the diversity and “small town feel” of our neighborhood.
