The Department of Juvenile Justice Blazers program is in place to teach practical and useful skills to our youth in the justice system. Networking, public speaking, social etiquette are just a few of the skills taught to the youth to help them learn to become a productive citizen in society upon their release. The Lake Murray-Irmo Rotary Club are sponsors of the program. Members of the Blazers team visited us to discuss the projects sponsored by our club. On February 13, 2015 the 1st Annual Sweetheart Dance Bridging Generations through Hope was held at the Bill Rogers Community Connections Center. With our support the youth Blazers hosted a prom style event complete with bouquets and boutonnieres and even a King and Queen of Hearts. DJJ Blazers also participated in ‘The House that DJJ Built’ in coordination with Habitat For Humanity and with the support of our club. We are so very proud of these youth as they work towards their release from DJJ and becoming an important member of our society. Pictured below are two members of the DJJ Blazers presenting club president Stan Bugner with an award in appreciation for our contribution to their efforts.
