Youth Participate in Abstinence and Etiquette Banquet & Performing Arts Hosts Year End Concert

Youth from The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club participated in the For You I Will Banquet and youth from The Salvation Army School of Performing Arts put on a concert at the Richmond Citadel Corps.

In the last couple weeks, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club hosted the For You I Will Banquet for teens and pre-teens at the Club. The For You I Will program is a health & life skills program at the club that encourages abstinence and healthy relationships. The event was held at L’s Restaurant in the East End and featured speakers on etiquette and abstinence and about 35 youth from the club participated in the event.

Coming up, the club will host the Think Pink Tea and Fashion Show on Saturday, June 14 from 11am to 2pm with one of the newest Club Council members, Kelli Lemon, who you may recognize from the RVA happy video as the emcee of the event.

The event open to the public and a five dollar donation is appreciated. Well last Tuesday, The Salvation Army School of Performing Arts hosted their annual Year End Concert at The Richmond Citadel Corps. In the year Sara Elliott has been director of the program she’s formed partnerships and been back and forth between Richmond Citadel Corps and The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club offering lessons and enriching lives through music education.

There were more than 50 people in attendance to experience the wonderful performances of what kids from the Corps and Club had learned over the past year. We’re always looking for volunteers with a passion for music so if you feel like you’d like to make an impact through music, please get in touch with Sara at sara_elliott@uss.salvationarmy.org.
