18th Annual Children of Promise Conference: In Our Own Voices – The Youth Speak Out
October 27 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pmFree
Through the intersection of youth development and youth empowerment, the National Council of Negro Women presents a forum for youth to have an impact. Participating youth will express their ideas, challenge rules, ask questions, seek support and pursue civic engagement strategies through individually crafted, high quality presentations. Using the highly popular Ted Talk format Parents, Educators, and Community Leaders will witness students applying their voices to seek social change. Selected topics include: Parent-Child Relationships, Youth Opportunities, Schools and Teachers, Health and Safety, and Arts and Entertainment. This year’s conference aims to shift the negative perceptions of today’s youth by offering a safe space for them to express their feelings on several issues and in doing so become empowered to grow the community.
