Legacy of Leadership: Creating a Better Tomorrow + POST BRUNCH

Join Thursday Network as we spark a Legacy of Leadership with students in our community! On February 2, 2019, we will be holding an open discussion with students at Sousa Middle School as we discuss how they can make their community a safer and more inclusive place for their neighborhoods. We will be conducting a Blue Sky project where students discuss how they can solve issues within their own communities and how their neighborhood would look and feel if it changed. We are in need of adults who are interested in working with student groups as they create a collage to represent their ideal community and facilitate conversations on the steps students can take to make their “Blue Sky” a reality.
