For Immediate Release
Date: Sept. 22, 2014
Over 400 local middle school students and parents have registered to attend #Choices: A Community Summit, sponsored by the City of Savannah and the Savannah Youth Council in partnership with America’s Promise Alliance. The event will be held this Tuesday, Sept. 23 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Savannah Civic Center. #Choices will engage students 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. Registration for this event is now closed but members of the media are invited to attend.
