“It’s Someone Else’s Job” (Kids Can’t Do It Alone!)

Education Mini-Forum #2

Saturday June 12th, 10:30 a.m.-Noon at Hayward City Hall, Room 2A, 777 B Street

Last month in Education Mini-Forum #1, our guest speaker was Dr. Marlena Uhrik of the California Department of Education. Dr. Uhrik listed three things children need in their lives that cost NO money:

  1. High standards
  2. A caring adult
  3. Meaningful participation

On June 12th, we will cover #2 of Dr. Uhrik’s list with the following panelists:

  • A local high school counselor to represent a CURRENT hands-on perspective of her experiences dealing with youth on a daily basis
  • A large company employer to represent a child’s FUTURE employment opportunities
  • Mentor & mentee success stories to represent REAL examples of how powerful it is to have a caring adult in a child’s life

This event is FREE and the public is welcome!
