6th Annual Youth Opportunity Summit and Town Hall Meeting
You are invited to attend the 6th Annual Youth Opportunity Summit and Town Hall Meeting. This meeting is held to discuss preparing youth to stay safe and avoid criminal behavior, especially after school and during summer vacation. The Metropolitan Police Department will engage youth in an energizing panel discussion followed by breakout workshops topics design by youth for youth.
The panelists will include young adults who made it through their teen years successfully and are now embarking on careers or educational opportunities. Just to name a few confirmed panelists: Markus Batchelor, former DC Youth Mayor and 2011 George Washington University Trachtenberg Scholarship Winner; Chris Wright, Senior, Georgetown University; DJ Rico, Majic 102.3 and other exciting individuals.
Lunch will be served, followed by breakout workshops to further connect youth to positive avenues to stay out of trouble. We are calling on you to bring youth out to this exciting event. The purpose of this yearly event is to provide assistance with engaging youth residents, their parents or guardians in meaningful activities that deter criminal behavior.
So grab your youth, get on your church van, carpool or take Metro, but please attend this important summit on Saturday, April 16, 2011 from 10-3 at Savoy Elementary School , located at 2400 Shannon Place SE . The school is located directly across from the Anacostia Metro Station.
If any of you would like to host an information table, please notify me immediately at the numbers below. Space is limited and going fast. Thank you very much.
