Our 2018 South Shore Summit – “Shore Up”
Join us for our 4th annual neighborhood summit! We are so excited to continue our summit this year, “Making Waves in South Shore: Toward A Cross Generational Action Agenda”.
We are so excited about working collaboratively with our youth who are learning to see themselves as cultural influencers and social activists. Their role as equity partners in the planning and implementation of social change will be a game changer, both for them and the space they inhabit. The elders will not have to pass the baton, as it will be firmly in the grasp of the youth who co-created it.
Community residents and organizations will learn how they can be a part of the change that is coming to the community in very concrete ways: updates on the development projects currently underway, introductions to new projects in the pipeline; and practical guidance on how to actualize projects of their own.
This conference is community-driven and interactive. Plenary sessions will be augmented by Working Groups in our key result areas:
- Economic Development
- Housing Arts and Culture
- Public Safety
- Health & Wellness, and
- Community Service
At the end of the summit, each attendee will be asked to “Get in Where They Fit In” by joining a group, committing to some volunteer time, agreeing to become active on their block, joining a special events committee, offering their expertise or mentoring services etc. A resource book is being developed as a take-away and those with e-mail addresses will become a part of our ongoing communications strategy.
You, too, are a South Shore stakeholder and, as such, are invited to participate in the conversation and be “a part of the solution”.
