[ARCHIVED] Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado and the City of Homestead Recognized by KAPOW

The organization Kids and the Power of Work (KAPOW) recently awarded Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado and the City of Homestead a plaque during their Recognition Dinner and Awards ceremony for their continued support to the program.

Councilman Maldonado recently collaborated with KAPOW in a program to teach children about the world of work through two interactive field trips to the City of Homestead. Students toured different departments in the City of Homestead, including Homestead Energy Services and Parks and Recreation, and had the opportunity to learn about different types of careers in municipal government.

“Children today are entering a more challenging workforce, so we are proud to help programs like KAPOW to prepare our children for their future,” said Councilman Maldonado, Liaison to the Homestead Education Committee. “The City of Homestead and I are honored to be recognized by KAPOW for doing our part. We commend them for their work and will continue to support them in their mission.”

The first field trip on May 8, hosted fifty 6th grade students from Campbell Drive Middle School, and the second on May 14, hosted over forty 5th grade students from Somerset Academy South Homestead. Students from both schools took a tour of the City’s Utilities Department, and saw and participated in a K-9 Demonstration and Homestead Police Department Interactive demonstration at the William F. “Bill” Dickinson Center. Students also enjoyed a personal visit from Councilman Elvis Maldonado.

Kids and the Power of Work (KAPOW) partners business and community volunteers with teachers and schools to help students discover new and different jobs, what it takes to do them, and how everything they are learning in school helps them prepare for their futures in the workplace, and life.
