The Future of the RFK Stadium-Armory Campus

After extensive planning, outreach, public input and involvement, Events DC is proud to present two concepts for the RFK Stadium-Armory Campus. Our vision for the Campus’ future is to create a revitalized site that celebrates its iconic beauty and history – while also acting as a first-class example of urban living that can attract residents and visitors and at the same time maintain a strong local identity.

Acting as a catalyst for the city, the RFK Campus future project will also make a substantial economic impact on the District, by reinvesting into the city through job opportunities, youth programs, local business development and ample community benefits and neighborhood serving amenities for residents to enjoy.

Community Spotlight: The Fishing School

The Fishing School has been teaching children to “fish in the rivers of their minds” since the late 1980s, when a retired District police officer transformed an abandoned crack house into an afterschool center for neighborhood children. Since then, The Fishing School has worked to close the achievement gap for over 5,000 underprivileged children by providing them with an afterschool curriculum from grades 1 through 8. This curriculum integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEM) with language, life skills, and homework help. The Fishing School also exposes children to college preparation and offers interest clubs for topics like dance, theater, sports, and more.

We chose The Fishing School as our Community Spotlight this month because of their success in helping the District’s children. In the last city-wide evaluation, they were ranked first in math and second in reading outcomes for youth programs funded by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education. We spoke to Dr. Porsha Childs, Director of Programs, to tell us more about what this program has to offer.

Our Local Heroes: Anacostia Watershed Society

The Anacostia watershed just got a whole lot cleaner thanks to about 2,000 volunteers! This month, we’re going to take a bit of time to appreciate the work that they’ve done to help make our surrounding area a little bit more beautiful.https://www.anacostiaws.org
