The National Black TEEN Empowerment Expo: Join Us For This Week's New York City and New Jersey Youth Resource (961 hits)

“Just imagine how bright a future would shine on us tomorrow if we all contributed to our TEENS today.”

The NBTEE is hosting New York City and New Jersey Youth Resource Summits in late September.

We hope to have a variety of individuals and youth groups in attendance at these events so that we can get to work towards strengthening the ways our communities support today’s younger generation.

Please join us for summit pre-planning sessions on Thursday, July 29, 2010, at 5:30 p.m., at 26 Court Street (near Remsen, a block away from the 2 or 3 Boro Hall station), Suite 703, in downtown Brooklyn. We’ll also be hosting the pre-planning session for New Jersey’s summit on Friday, July 30, 2010, 11:00 a.m., at 70 Hudson Street, 7th floor, in Hoboken (a block away from the Hoboken Path station).

These sessions will discuss the mission of the summits in assessing and assembling our communities of youth resources, and providing our youth multiple alternative pathways to success so that we inspire and uplift more of today’s youth and young adults.

The New Jersey Summit (co-organized by The Urban League) is currently scheduled for September 29, 2010, and The New York Summit for September 30, 2010.

Youth Resource Summit goals include:

• bringing a community of resources to one table so that we can discuss, determine and deliver better ways to reach and teach today’s youth.

• forming partnerships and develop collaborative strategies to help us consistently, constructively and creatively uplift more youth more often.

• learning about existing youth groups, youth programs, and related resources and events in our community.

• developing communication tools to keep our children and TEENS consistently connected to youth programs and resources, and our community better informed of youth programs, youth events and related resources.

• sharing ideas on how we can strengthen youth engagement, community outreach and coalition-building initiatives.

• garnering more support from our community-at-large, and pursue other funding and financial resources.

• forming community partnerships with groups who will bring value to and benefit from participating in The Black TEEN Empowerment Expo and its associated initiatives, products and events such as FAME: Fashion, Art, Music & Education, TEEN IDOL, M.A.P.S. 4 TEENS (youth, TEEN and young adult resource guides), TEEN Hall Meetings and Live-in-Peace Art Parties.

We hope you will join us at these meetings and encourage other youth resources or individuals in your circles to also attend as we believe the more people who are a part of the progress, the more progress we can sooner make. Please RSVP to R. Lee Gordon at 734.395.3079 or info@nbtee.org.

Please also note Youth Resource Summits are being planned in Detroit and Baltimore so start collecting and connecting our resources in those communities NOW!

Together, let’s ensure our community is always one of our children and TEEN’s greatest resources.
