Youth Rise: Stand Together

July 28 - November 10, 2021

Please join us for the Youth Rise: Stand Together program. The intent of this program is for middle and high school students to have meaningful interactions with professionals of color and to bridge the gaps in opportunity for youth in the Capital Region. Each program in the series will feature a leader in the community that will share their story - successes, failures, and passions.

Each program will have a different speaker or panel of speakers to share their insight into their career path, the experiences that allowed them to reach their goals, and their extensive role in the community. We hope you can join us for this wonderful learning opportunity.

The final program will take place on September 22 from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. There is no fee to participate in the program but registration is required. Each program will have a separate registration link. The registration for May is now available. A Zoom link will be sent to all participants the afternoon before the program for the following day.  Please contact education@whitakercenter.org, with any questions regarding the program or registration. We look forward to embarking on this meaningful, exciting program.
