This came into my inbox from my grad program and it seemed a little too timely not to share with folks here
It Takes A Village to Raise a Child
A Neighborhood Connections Community Conversation
You've probably heard this phrase often - It Takes a Village to Raise a Child - but what does it actually mean? And how do we make this happen in our community? Neighborhood Connections, the small grants program affiliated with the Cleveland Foundation, invites all those interested to discuss some of the creative approaches small grassroots neighborhood groups are using to "raise a child" in their neighborhoods. If you or your neighborhood group have something to share, or want to learn more about what you can do, you are invited to this conversation! Meet other grassroots groups working to improve the lives of children in their neighborhood. Connect with other larger youth initiatives and trainings like MyCOM, Starting-Point, the Treu-Mart Fellowship, CMSD, Voices for Ohio's Children, and Education Voters.
This conversation will be held on Wednesday February 24th from 6pm to 8:30pm at the Urban Community School, 4909 Lorain Ave., on Cleveland's near west side.
This event is free and open to the public. Free parking. Coffee and desserts. RSVP to Rachel at 216.393.4622 or at email@example.com
