2018 Self-Empowering Workshop Update

Community/Business Partnerships Make it Possible. 

We are thankful to the following supporters of our 2018 Self -Empowering Workshop.

T​here is still a need for additional sponsorship to help us accomplish our mission. 

We appreciate your support  

Registration is ongoing 

Workshop Theme
This year's theme is quite timely, and will focus heavily on how our young women and men (grades 6-9, 10 - College) can creatively manage social relationships and set boundaries necessary for the successful navigation of life at school, college, and social/community settings.  As always, there will be other resources that will address the needs of parents and our children in preparation for school and college success.

You can also help by sharing our information with others and Follow Us on Facebook. You can always Contact Us

Thank you for your interest and support.

Kind regards,

Madona Cole-Lacy

Internship and Community Service Opportunities are Available
