[FERNDALE] – Sullivan Renaissance will host a seminar about opportunities for young people to become involved in volunteer projects throughout Sullivan County. The seminar will be held on Wednesday, February 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Ferndale.
“President Barack Obama called for a National Day of Service on January 19 to honor the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We would like to continue to promote volunteer service through a workshop that explores ways to engage youth in our community,” said Sullivan Renaissance Program Officer Denise Frangipane.
Sullivan Renaissance has several programs that are youth-focused, starting with the basic requirement that young people be included in all beautification projects.
The seminar will address several key areas:
Details of the expanded Sullivan Renaissance internship program “Change is a Relay” will also be presented.
Individuals interested in Sullivan Renaissance should also mark their calendars to reserve Saturday, February 21 for the annual Winter Conference at the CVI Building. The keynote speaker will be author James Howard Kunstler.
