As summer comes to a close, Code 3 is celebrating the expansion of our signature Project Hope program. This year, Project Hope launched in Southeast Washington, DC at John Carroll Nalle Elementary School.
We kicked off with a school beautification project in May, where police and students worked together to create murals throughout the school, helping to cultivate an inspiring learning environment. Members of the community and the Metropolitan Police Department were present to witness the big reveal. Throughout the summer, students from the school participated also in recreational activities with local police including skating, swimming and basketball tournaments.
We look forward to the way this program will continue to build bridges between local students and police officers.
Code 3’s Project Hope program at Hutchison Elementary School in Herndon, VA is our longest-running program and had yet another great summer. The program is beloved by students and their families, and is also changing the perception of police in the communities surrounding the school.
