Lunching and Learning! Children and Youth in the Foster Care System

lunch and learnThanks to everyone who helped and the more than 20 people who attended the June 14th Promise the Children Lunch and Learn.  Great turn out, good food and exciting discussion for and about a group of children and young people with great needs. Athens UU David Meyers with the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development at UGA helped us think more about how we might work to support homeless and foster youth who are moving on to post-secondary education.  Some of our UUCA members with foster care experience added personal expertise and wisdom. St. Bart’s congregation is interested in partnering with us and Jo Mitchell is helping to explore our next steps. Let us know if you are interested in joining us as we figure out some real and effective ways to make a difference! Contact us at promisethechildren@uuca.org.
