We would like to invite you to join us and America’s Promise Alliance as we discuss how we can all be “Local Changemakers.” We hope Local Changemakers can become a network of youth ambassadors that engage with educators and community advocates to brainstorm strategies to increase student graduation rates. By centralizing the community and creating this open dialogue, we will spread awareness of how creating a Grad Nation will positively impact communities.
Join our first discussion on Sunday, June 9 at 5pm EST via-conference call. Participants will be able to network, share ideas, and develop new initiatives to improve education in communities throughout the nation. Topics will include standardized testing and breaking barriers to achieving post-secondary education. Also, we will discuss how to become a Local Changemaker.
Conference Call: (409) 777-9000 / PIN: 8529378#

Yours in advocacy and community development,
Devont’e Watson, Simone Bernstein, and Ritankar Das
