DECEMBER TASK FORCE "Education and Youth Development" Creates A BIG Vision!

The DECEMBER TASK FORCE "Education and Youth Development" Meeting, simply stated, "small crowd, all voices heard, resulted in a big vision, being created."

The January 2016 Your Voice Matters meeting is going to be very critical for our educaiton taskforce. It is also the midpoint of our community quality of life planning process.

As the information unfolds solidfiying the date, time and location, it will be extremely important to ensure the meeting is filled to capacity and inclusive of as many parents, concerned residents of all ages, neighborhood school leadership, teachers and staff, needed to address this important phase of our strategic community education planning process.

On deck to present, is the new Area Chief of Network 11 schools. Our network 11 team will share with us in a "state of the union" address format, presenting our local Chicago Public School Data. The Network 11 update will give us a good understanding of where we stand in our academic readiness and other key indicators, for the schools across our entire network of scools. The data will be used to help us develop impactful goals and target the right priorities, in ways that will best impact educaiton and youth development activities.

Our youth's future and continued successful education outcomes, are dependent on the strategies and goals that we collectively put in place, to help drive any and all needed improvements, in parent engagement activities, academics, along with social and emotional supports, for youth, families and the schools throughout our neighborhood.

Again, thanks to our team of thought leaders, who participated December 17th, and created a collective baseline vision, for the Your Voice Matters Task Force to drive  the future of education and youth development, in our community.

See you in January!
