[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance invites Sullivan County youth to a discussion about opportunities to make a difference in their communities through internships, volunteerism and general engagement. The seminar will be held on Wednesday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Liberty. Youth who are interested in volunteer or work opportunities are encouraged to attend.
The program will begin with performances by Project:Identity participants Rebecca Budrock and Elizabeth Dos Santos.
“By presenting our teens with diverse career paths and volunteer opportunities, we empower them to be who they aspire to be,” said Christine Bunce, Museum Education Manager for Bethel Woods and Coordinator of Project:Identity.
An open discussion will follow led by a panel of representatives from Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, Center for Workforce Development, Sullivan Renaissance and Youth Economic Group (YEG). Participants will share several opportunities for young people to engage in their communities, as well as examine the benefits to themselves and their community. The program will include time for general discussion.
“This seminar will encourage young people to get involved in the development of themselves and their communities,” said Lillian Carbonara, Manager of Volunteer Services at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
“Sullivan Renaissance is happy to share this evening with colleagues and partners who offer opportunities to engage young people,” said Sullivan Renaissance Assistant Director Denise Frangipane.
