Today is the first day of the District’s Department of Consumer & Regulatory Affairs summer youth employment program. We decided to visit with some of our fellow youth employees to ask them questions that may help the DCRA staff get to know them better. We asked 16 year-old Laurence Cross what his favorite part of the day was. He told us that seeing his supervisor again was what he enjoyed most. Laurence has experience working with the “Support Services Division”. Last year helped give him people skills and now he’s brilliant at his job. There’s another thing that Laurence is really good at: football. He says for as long as he can remember, he always loved football. Now he’s playing football for Ballou Senior High School. His goal is to attend college and become a professional football player.

We also talked to 16 year-old Leah Britton. Her favorite part of today was the lunch break. She didn’t expect the DCRA summer youth program to be this fun. Leah’s goal is to learn how to communicate with others. After her summer job with DCRA is over, Leah plans to communicate with a lot more people. But, during the program she told us she will be saving the majority of her money and going on a shopping spree.

Next, we ran into 20 year-old Latoya Pannell. She loves getting to know others. She said she’s been having fun from the moment she walked into the building. She even wants the opportunity to learn more about DCRA as she shares her time with the staff. Her work in the communications department will help her be more confident when she attends Everest College this Fall.
