Engaged Black Leadership in 2012: Activism, Organization and Empowerment
You are cordially invited to participate in the 2012 REACH Project Black Leadership Summit on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at Temple University in the Howard Gittis Student Center. The Summit will explore current activities to improve the Black community, from service-learning and student activism to mentoring and family involvement.
After hosting summits in 2009 and 2010, REACH returns to fulfill its mission of facilitating collaborations between between Black student organizations and local community-based organizations in the Philadelphia region. At the 2010 Summit over 230 students, educators, entrepreneurs, and community leaders met to explore the condition of the Black community in Philadelphia and nationally.
We are seeking proposals that address the conference theme, Engaged Black Leadership in 2012: Activism, Organization and Empowerment. Proposed sessions should be informative and relevant, engaging and interactive, theoretically grounded and practice oriented. Session themes can include, but are not limited to: activism, leadership models/development, family involvement, community service/service-learning, and mentoring.
During the Summit, we would like to highlight students’ involvement in community service and service-learning projects. REACH 2012 will feature a poster session to present the wide range of student-community engagement across the Delaware Valley area.
The deadline for all proposals is Friday, January 27, 2012. Proposal submission descriptions and process is located at the REACH website: www.thereachproject.net
