Masonic Charities of Delaware contributed $5,000 to Green Beret Project coordinators on Sept. 13 in Dover.
The Green Beret Project includes police officers, volunteers from the Delaware Department of Corrections, the military, businesses and the community. It offers at-risk youth dynamic programming after school and on weekends. During these sessions, adult cadre build rapport and trust while identifying future young leaders for the program. There is informal and formal mentorship for youth.
Grades, behavior, and home life are monitored to assist and support parents/guardians in keeping kids in school and on-track to graduate. As Green Beret Project youth mature, they are given opportunities to explore their future to include vocational training or college prep.
