AT_documentaryAtterbury Job Corps Center students presented the capstone of their Youth 2 Youth Week work on Sept. 22, with the delivery of a Center Student Diversity Group documentary.

That evening, the Recreation Department provided an outdoor movie night, complete with a popcorn machine and drinks. The documentary “May Peace Prevail” was debuted to a rave review. The entire night was a poignant time to reflect on learnings from the week and interact as a community. The documentary was presented with the final version of the “Humans of Atterbury” photoblog project.

On Saturday, 27 students participated in the Circle City Classic sponsored by the Indiana Black Expo. This annual event celebrates the potential in young African-American youth and educates attendees on a diverse group of cultural heritages. The first portion of the event included a college and job fair for high school and college-aged youth, followed by a family-friendly block party . Shortly thereafter, Kentucky State and Central State Universities will battle it out on the Gridiron. Which HBCU will come out on top is anyone’s guess, as both teams look strong this year.

The student body were highly appreciative of Y2Y Week 2017 and this year’s activities will be hard to top. Students responded to the call to take a stand against violence and bullying and be the light in a sometimes dark world. Atterbury is very proud of all its students, and will be counting down the days until Y2Y Week 2018!
