Diane DeVries, graphic designer and owner of Digrafika LLC in Dover, NH will work through the month of April to transform the storefront façade of Project PRIDE in Rochester.

Mrs. DeVries will work with a local carpenter, print shop, photographer, screenprinter, flag maker, and school horticultural department to complete the project by May 2010. Through a few simple design projects, she will help create an attractive destination for the youth participating in programs at Project PRIDE at 33 Hanson St., Rochester, NH 03867. These projects include window art, flower boxes and a custom flag.

In addition, new t-shirts will be made for the students at Project PRIDE to wear when they are working in the community, helping further brand Project PRIDE.

The Project PRIDE program is a comprehensive out-of-school youth program serving economically disadvantaged, adjudicated, homeless, runaway, disabled, pregnant or parenting, and otherwise qualified youth as defined by the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), between the ages of 18 and 21 (and those 16 and 17 who have achieved a high school diploma or GED) who wish to become economically self-sufficient, independent and productive community members.
