DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION work with the youth of Detroit?
If so, you will want to attend the second annual Detroit Youth Resource Summit, sponsored by the Better Detroit Youth Movement and ARISE Detroit!
The summit will be held Thursday, June 22, from 6 p.m to 8 p.m. in the Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick Conference Room of the Samaritan Center, 5555 Conner, Detroit, 48213. The event is free and open to the public.
Refreshments will be served.
The summit’s purpose is to bring together groups that assist youth in everything from education to recreational programs. This year’s program will have a special emphasis on conflict resolution programs, said Reuben Gordon, co-founder and co-director of the Better Detroit Youth Movement.
He is also the founder of the Detroit Resource Alert Project, or RAP, aimed at making youth aware of the many community resources available to help them in their life decisions, academic and other needs.
“We think it’s important to make youth aware of the many efforts to help them,” Gordon said. “We expect this to be a great networking, information sharing and collaboration building event.”
Summit participants are encouraged to bring and distribute material about their organizations. A number of information tables will be made available.
“We want to improve the quality of life for our children,” Gordon said.
