For Immediate Release
Date: August 19, 2014
The City of Savannah and the Savannah Youth Council in partnership with America’s Promise Alliance will host #Choices: A Community Summit for middle school students on Tuesday, Sept. 23 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Savannah Civic Center. Students enrolled in grades 6th-8th and their parents are invited to attend.
Registration is required by Sept. 5. Attendees can register online at www.savannahga.gov/choices. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children to participate in the parents’ forum, which will be held at the same time. A free dinner will be provided to all participants.
Students will engage in a series of roadmap exercises to help illustrate the positive outcomes of making the right choices for high school and college. The event will offer practical guidance and real-life examples to help youth think - and learn - more about who they are and what they want to be. It also can help them begin to see planning as a life-long strategy to achieving success.
#Choices is funded by America’s Promise Alliance as part of its Grad Nation initiative. The Grad Nation initiative brings together individuals, organizations and communities to work together to end America’s dropout crisis and increase the graduation rate.
