Building Better Futures, the City’s youth and gang violence prevention initiative, is holding two Community Engagement sessions to gather feedback and support from residents for the development of a strategic plan. The purpose of the strategic plan is to strengthen prevention and intervention efforts in the city as a means of reducing violence. Citizen participation is vital to developing this plan and all residents are encouraged to attend one of the following two sessions:
Tuesday, July 17, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Downing Gross Cultural Arts Center
2410 Wickham Avenue
Tuesday, August 21, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Denbigh Community Center
15198 Warwick Boulevard
During each session residents will discuss:
Building Better Futures currently runs two major programs – the Summer Training and Enrichment Program (STEP) and Seeking Opportunities Within (SOW) – along with other smaller programs throughout the year to help address youth and gang violence in the city. To enhance and expand the current efforts, Building Better Futures hired a consultant to assist in creating this strategic plan.
Everyone is welcome to attend a Community Engagement session. Light refreshments will be served. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (757) 933-2311.
