Yesterday afternoon, Tuesday January 31st
, the Junior Explorers, two of their parents and two of our Explorers (ages 14 – 21) packed 51 boxes totaling 11,016 meals, which will feed 30 kids for a year. The cost for those meals is $2,424.00.
Junior Explorers is a program for youth in the 6th
grade. We meet after school at Chaska Middle School East in the shop room from 2:45 PM to 3:45 PM. The program motivates and engages young people to be outstanding citizens through public safety education. An outgrowth of community policing, CPJE transforms the traditional role of the police officer into one of mentor and friend, while encouraging our young citizens to be partners in building safer schools and community.
If your son or daughter is interested in becoming involved in our Junior Explorer program please call Officer Julie Janke at 952-448-4200 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org
