"I had the unique opportunity to meet with city leaders and learn the ins and outs of how this city functions, while at the same time developing my own leadership skills."
- Derrick Kariman; Year 3
Krystle Property Management
Our Year 1 class beautified Tennessee Street in Vallejo. They implemented Christmas lights on the trees, added planters on the streets, created murals, and more. The effort to beautify Tennessee Street continues.
VALLEJO WATERFRONT GROUP
The admiration for a beautiful waterfront led Year 3 to create a project that replaced planters, added doggie doo stations, pressure washed walkways, plus repaired and repainted benches and curbs.
TASTE OF VALLEJO
Year 4 created an evening fundraiser consisting of restaurant wine and beer tastings, safety demonstrations, and live entertainment. Proceeds benefited the Guardian Angels and the Vallejo Volunteer Police Offices. The event was so successful that it is now held every year.
OUT OF POCKET ARTISTRY
The goal of the Year 6 project was to teach, implement, and engage youth in the culture of art. The project brought together volunteer artists and students of various ages to create an art project that displayed students’ creativity and expression. Their pieces were on display at the McCree-Goodeau Art Gallery during the summer of 2013.
