Project Imagine Participants celebrate graduation

By  | 

DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) - It's been nine long weeks for Project Imagine Participants, but 4 of the original 5 members are graduating!

Organizer Robert David spoke to a small crowd at the municipal building this afternoon about what this means to him, and explained how hard the participants worked.

The men and women were either former gang members, served time in jail, on probation, or just didn't make the best life choices.

Project Imagine continues to work to help young adults get full time jobs and hopefully keep them.

This session also included help from various community resources, teaching the men and women things like how to set up a bank account.

David is planning a third session which is set to begin in a few weeks.
