Young Achievers/Argus House 2013-Present Day

From January 2013- Fall 2017, founder Elizabeth Auten led a weekly program with 5-9 participants from the Young Achievers Program at the Argus House, a court-run program for adolescent boys in Arlington County.  The participants’ enthusiasm led to the addition of a second weekly class in June, 2017-2018 with a group of 10-12 Argus House live-in residents.  Be sure to read the June 2013 Washington Post article highlighting the program’s success!

Weekly classes at Young Achievers Program continue in the current 2018-2019 school year, thanks to the dedication of our volunteers!
