Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program
SMILE has partnered with the Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program since 2018. We have worked with over 20 DC youth over the past two summers. Our youth employees take part in an in-depth social and emotional mental health training with SMILE therapists. Once they have completed their training program they then take their gained knowledge and work hand-in-hand with SMILE therapists to host workshops for the youth in our annual summer camp.
SMILE is active in the community. We take part in a variety of events hosted in the Washington, DC area.
