The Latin American Youth Center’s mission is to empower a diverse population of DC-area youth to achieve a successful transition to adulthood through multi-cultural, comprehensive, and innovative programs and opportunities in academics, arts and recreation, job readiness, safe housing, and health and wellness, addressing their social, academic, and career needs. Our charity of the month’s Food & Nutrition Program enables youth to get their hands dirty in the kitchen and the garden. In its Teen Center kitchen, youth hone their cooking skills, learn how to make healthy choices about what they eat, and engage with broader food justice issues, and, in its raised bed garden, directly experience how food grows.
For each almond creme cupcake (vanilla cake topped with almond frosting + toasted almonds) sold this month at Sticky Fingers, we’ll donate $1 to support Latin American Youth Center. Eat cupcakes for charity!
