'Youthbuild' Peace Pole Project, Fall River, MA, USA


This is the Peace Pole from Community Development Recreation. The kids surrounding the Peace Pole are part of an organization called Youthbuild that is for underserviced youth. They are in a GED (General Equivalency Diploma) program and learn the fundamentals of construction work. They prepared all the Peace Poles for Fall River – cutting the lengths, making the points and giving them the first coat of paint.

The group photo has Mayor Flanagan in the center in suit, Jamison Souza in tie director of CD Rec and Grace Gerling CEO CD Rec next to him and the America's Promise Alliance Fellows for the state of MASS.
