AmeriCorps members with M&T Bank's Derek Harps.
M&T Bank recently honored members of the Latin American Youth Center and Maryland Multicultural Youth Centers AmeriCorps programs at a ceremony held at the Center's anchor site.
Special jackets and hats were presented to the young people who completed AmeriCorps training and now serve as educational aides. LAYC's AmeriCorps program is divided into three teams -- civic engagement, health, and education. The program works in DC public schools providing support to students who are performing below grade level as well as working in various other capacities in the city's neighborhoods.

The jackets feature the M&T Bank logo on one sleeve, AmeriCorps logo on the other, and Latin American Youth Center and Maryland Multicultural Youth Center lettering on the back. They will be worn while AmeriCorps members carry out community service projects.
"The work that the members are doing in the community is incredibly valuable," Derek Harps, Vice President of the Not-For-Profit Banking Group at M&T Bank, said.

LAYC's AmeriCorps Program was established in 1997 at the DC site and in 2007 in Maryland. Members are recruited from the local community, and many have been involved with LAYC and attended the DC or MD public schools in which they now serve.
