TCP Student-led community events were a smash hit!
7 months ago a group of TCP Youth Empowerment students created business plans around a community event they are passionate about and presented them to a panel of local business professionals which took place on December 30, 2020. Since then, the students have been guided by TCP mentors, David "Rocky" Gonsalves, Lance McKinnon, Bob Parkinson, and Founder, Andy Schindling to bring their events to life.
On April 23 and 24, the Youth Service America Global Youth Service Day weekend, TCP students had the great pleasure of turning an idea into a reality. Over these two days, TCP students led 50 local youth in serving their community through three activities - baking cakes and muffins, stuffing hygiene bags, and building and starting oyster farms.
By the end of their events, TCP and local youth had built and started 11 oyster farms which will produce between 700-1,000 adult oysters and baked 104 muffins and cakes and stuffed 100 hygiene bags that were delivered to Sarah's House in Odenton and Annapolis Light House.
