Getting Ready for Summer 
  
We know many of you will be busy with summer camps, community outreach, and programs while students are out of school. Whereas your regular schedule may change for the next couple of months, please take note that we do not have events or issues of INSIGHT planned for this summer. We will use this time to prepare for an enriching FY2017 by upgrading programs and benefits for our members.

  Nonprofit Prince Georg e's County has dance fever
Nonprofit Prince George's County coordinates the Children's Mental Health Matters Initiative (CMHM) in partnership with the Prince George's County School Public Schools and over 25 nonprofits.   CMHM brings awareness to the importance of mental health wellness and resources available for support.  

As part of Children's Mental Health Matters Week's activities , Nonprofit PGC reached out to Joe's Movement Emporium to organize a Flash Mob, May 18, in Hyattsville, in support of CMHM and they were up for the challenge. 

Special thanks to Brooke Kidd, who is the Executive Director of Joe's Movement Emporium, for an incredible effort in choreographing the dance moves and bringing many youth to support the flash mob, and to  Jim Chandler, who is the Director of Community & Economic Development for the City of Hyattsville, for exceptional logistical support, including clearing the road for dancing!   

Take a look at the report from PGCTV and see how much fun we had dancing in the streets.
