Special to the Guide
Youth left Norfolk and traveled south to Atlanta where they were able to tour the World of Coca-Cola and sample some of the different flavors from around the world. During their visit in Atlanta, they were also able to visit the Georgia Aquarium, where they saw the hammer head sharks, the white African alligators, and so many wonderful, beautiful animals. The group even took in a baseball game to see the Atlanta Braves.
Sunday service was a blessing to attend Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Senator Raphael Warnock is pastor. Leaving Atlanta, C.L.E.A.N. traveled back north to stop off in Greensboro, NC where they visited the International Civil Rights Museum. There they learned the meaning of the United States flag and the history of the Woolworth sit-in counter.
“This field trip was a fun-filled learning and blessed experience for the youth,” said Director and Founder Anthony Daniels.
“Through our programs, we have seen self-determined youth cultivate into responsible adults. With the help of Prayer and Dedicated Volunteers, we will continue to see improvements in our youth.
C.L.E.A.N. Is an 18-year-old youth mentoring organization with the mission to educate young people in the Berkley neighborhood and surrounding communities of Norfolk.
