ENGAGING YOUTH AND KEEPING THEM INVOLVED

A Seminar for Anyone Interested in Working with Youth

May 23, 2011

[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance is holding a seminar for anyone currently working with youth – or interested in working with youth.  The “Engaging Youth and Keeping Them Involved” seminar will be held on June 1 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Liberty. 

Young people grow up in communities, not programs.  This seminar will explore ways that youth can get involved and become part of making a difference.  Topics to be discussed include: misconceptions that adults have about youth; characteristics of effective adult leaders; the ladder of participation – where and how youth are engaged effectively; and working to build a youth friendly community. 

“Young people are eager and willing to be involved in their communities,” said Denise Frangipane, who coordinates Sullivan Renaissance youth initiatives. “Over the years we have found that the most simple and basic way to get them involved is to ask, and then to make them feel that they are part of something important.”  

Sullivan Renaissance is pleased to present several speakers for the evening including:

  • Laura Quigley, Director, Sullivan County Center for Workforce Development
  • Amanda Speer, Director of Programming, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County
  • Margaret “Meg” Goble, 2nd Year Sullivan Renaissance Intern in Liberty
  • Ashley Machera, 2nd Year Sullivan Renaissance Intern in Jeffersonville

Space is limited, pre-registration is requested.  Refreshments will be provided.  For more information or to register, contact Sullivan Renaissance at www.sullivanrenaissance.org or 845-295-2445.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter and WSUL/WVOS.
