Broward Youth Summit - Great Reviews!

youth_summit-rez_optOn Friday, March 27, 2009, the Broward ASPIRA Annual Youth Summit  "Your Future...Your Choice" took place at DeVry University from 9am to 4pm.  Close to 150 Aspirantes, local dignitaries, and community leaders were in attendance.

Our students participated in lecture style workshops covering various topics such as College Preparedness, Communication and Networking Skills, Substance Abuse and Violence Prevention, Financial Literacy, Career Awareness, Gang Avoidance, Etiquette, Entrepreneurship and Life Skills.

The event was a great success and featured in a few local newspapers.  We had professional speakers present to our Aspirantes including Dr. James Amps, Dr. Guy Wheeler, Dr. Nelson Santiago, Stella Tokar, President of Miramar/Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber of Commerce, Ivonne Salas, La Portada Magazine, Jean Johnson, City of Hollywood, University Representatives from FAU, DeVry University and Ana G. Mendez University System and Professionals from the Memorial Healthcare System, Collazo Law Offices, and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Satisfaction Surveys were handled out to all participants; results indicated 100% positive feedback.  A wonderful time was had by all!!!
