[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance is holding a seminar for individuals working with youth – or interested in working with youth. A seminar on “Creating the Next Generation of Leaders” will be held on Wednesday, October 2 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Liberty.
In addition to their school activities, young people often have several different kinds of opportunities to participate in their communities. These range from youth programs and work internships to community service and representation of boards.
This seminar will present three unique approaches to engaging youth. Presenters include:
• Peggy Johansen, Manor Ink of Livingston Manor
• Jillian Rahm and Katia Chapman, Youth Economic Group of Liberty
• Sean Welsh, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County
“Over the years we have found that the most simple and basic way to engage youth is to invite them to participate and offer them meaningful experiences,” said Denise Frangipane, who coordinates Sullivan Renaissance youth initiatives, “Here are three different approaches that work.”
Space is limited, pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be provided.
