Ocean Casino Resort Brings Lunch to the Hardest Working Teens in Atlantic City
ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (July 31, 2020) – Team members from Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City used their lunch hour this afternoon to show that Ocean Cares by serving lunch provided by Ocean’s Food and Beverage team to a group of Atlantic City teens who have spent their summer enhancing the city’s streets.
Turning Point’s Leaders in Training Program, or LIT, was launched last year as a way to provide jobs and opportunities to at-risk teenagers around the city ages 14 to 18 years old. The teens work from 8 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday with educational workshops on Fridays. They also have the option to work extra hours on the weekends.
The LIT program includes partnerships with the Atlantic City Police Department, Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, city government, the Fellowship of Churches and Atlantic County. The program also received a grant of $325,000 from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA). There are nearly 200 participants engaging in the community enhancement efforts during the eight-week program, which got a late start this summer due to COVID-19.
