  Ms. NORTON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to ask the House of 
Representatives to join me in congratulating the Latin American Youth 
Center (LAYC) on its 45th anniversary and for its exceptional work with 
underserved youth in the District of Columbia and the national capital 
region.
  Founded in 1974, LAYC began as a youth and family development center 
serving Latino youth in the District. Today, LAYC serves all youth at 
its five sites in the District of Columbia and in Maryland. LAYC 
continues to be committed to transforming the lives of underserved 
youth and their families through multicultural, comprehensive, and 
innovative programs that address the social, academic, and career needs 
of youths.
  We appreciate the LAYC's long presence in the District and its 
continued service to our city's young people. We also wish LAYC 
continued success for years to come.
  Mr. Speaker, I ask the House of Representatives to join me in 
celebrating the 45th anniversary of the Latin American Youth Center.
