Summer’s Over, Now Let’s Get Back to Work…….

Kingman Park Community,

This summer was a great one! Kingman Park crime stats were low and life was good this summer.  Now that school has started and the community meetings will start again next month.

It is time to get back in gear. What type of changes, activities and events would you like to see in the community?  What can you do to make Kingman Park a better place?

Do your part to make the Kingman Park Community  atmosphere a little better. Get to know your neighbors. Smile at people. Wave your hand and say hello. Lend a helping hand. You can change things for the better in Kingman Park Community.

Getting Back in Gear to Work,

Lisa White, ANC Commissioner SMD 7D01 Kingman Park

Trash Tuesday…..Please Join In For A Cleaner Community

Trash Tuesday

We are starting this effort in Kingman Park. Every Tuesday, we are cleaning in front our homes (side walk and curb area) If the houses on either side of you are not participating, please remove the trash from around those houses. If everyone participates, our community will be a much cleaning place!

Trash and Litter has environmental consequences. Wind and weather, traffic, and animals move trash and litter into gutters, lawns and landscaped areas, alleyways, and parking structures.
Trash and Litter begets trash and litter. Individuals are much more likely to litter into a littered environment. A clean community improves the overall community quality of life.
Please join me as we all work together for a cleaner community!

Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, Sanctuary, 600 I Street NW


The Sixth and I Historic Synagogue is a cultural institution and community center that connects the District’s past, present and future and symbolizes the city’s multicultural nature. Originally built in 1908 as the home of Adas Israel, one of DC’s oldest Jewish congregations, the building was purchased by Turner Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Church in 1951. It served as Turner Memorial’s home for half a century before that congregation moved to a new facility. A group of civic leaders acquired and renovated the Sixth & I building, reopening it in 2004 as a non-denominational, non-membership-based synagogue that serves as a cultural and educational center for the entire DC community. Emblematic of the rebirth of the District’s downtown, the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue has become a center for the arts, entertainment and community engagement.

Summer Youth Employment Program: Registration Starts Friday, Jan. 25, 2013

Program Overview
The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is a locally funded initiative sponsored by the Department of Employment Services that provides District youth ages 14-21 with enriching and constructive summer work experiences through subsidized placements in the private and government sectors.

Through SYEP, the Department of Employment Services strives to provide young people with the opportunity to do the following:

•Earn money and gain meaningful work experience
•Learn and develop the skills, attitudes and commitment necessary to succeed in today’s world of work
•Gain exposure to various exciting career industries
•Interact with dynamic working professionals in a positive work environment
Though SYEP is a short-term employment and training program, the goal is to introduce the youth to employers who will positively impact their futures.

Employers in the Washington, DC metropolitan area make this annual program possible by volunteering to serve as Host Employers and provide structured job opportunities for youth during the summer.

Program Dates
This year, SYEP will start on Monday, July 1, 2013, and will end on Friday, August 9, 2013.

The six-week program consist of 29 days of work (Thursday, July 4 is observed as a holiday and youth will not be paid for this day).
Program Details
Youth can apply beginning on Friday, January 25, 2013 at 12:15 pm.

Space is limited, so be sure to apply early!
