Monday, 9/18–Youth Advocacy Program Training (Carver High School Initiative)
Those interested in participating in any part of our Carver High School Youth Advocacy Program, including serving as mentors, should plan to attend our Justice League Training on Monday, September 18, at the Benjamin Hooks Public Library at 6pm. At the training, members will be prepared for time with Carver students by learning how to be an effective mentor, cultural competence, and other important topics.
Friday, 9/29–Youth Advocacy Program Networking Meet & Greet Kickoff
The official launch of our Youth Advocacy Program in partnership with Carver High School is September 29, 2017 from 2:15-3:15pm! We will hold a Networking Meet and Greet at Carver High School where members will have the opportunity to get to know some of the young men in our program. Those that wish to participate must also attend our Carver Training on Monday, 9/18, above.
We are hoping for as many Project MI members as possible in attendance to make a strong showing of support to these young men, so please attend if you can!
