Opera Host Organization - Washington, DC

Host Organization:

The District of Columbia Housing Authority (DCHA) is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in the District of Columbia by providing and effectively managing affordable housing which is diverse, well maintained, and aesthetically pleasing for those whose circumstances prevent them from competing in the general marketplace.

The Office of Resident Services (ORS) is the primary link between the resident leadership and the agency. ORS partners with residents and other organizations to develop meaningful initiatives to enrich the lives of youth, adults, and seniors.

The Do Your B.E.S.T. Summer Youth Employment Program stands for Building Excellence through Service and Training. The goals of this program are: (1) to give young people from public housing an opportunity to experience work in the public and private sectors and (2) to challenge them to grow professionally and personally from a structured employment program that includes community service and youth leadership principles.

On Saturday, September 22, 2007 - Youth from the B.E.S.T. program will participate in a tour of the Kennedy Center and educational session about career opportunities in the field of opera after the La Boh�me simulcast. DCHA and Washington National Opera will host this event.

DCHA has partnered with the Washington National Opera to host this project in Washington, DC.
