Here is an upcoming conference I invite all parents, teachers, guardians, youth group leaders, and anyone with questions/concerns with recent happenings in the city of Cleveland, to attend. There have been many avenues in which some form of action has taken place in opposition with what all is going on. This particular avenue has been set up for dialogue, learning and understanding for everyone. I hope that what is created here can spark another change in the right direction…

The goal of this event (hosted by the University Circle United Methodist Church) is to educate young people in our community  on how to deal with encounters with law enforcement with the singular purpose to “JUST GET HOME”. We want our children and neighbors to know that they can work inside the system to promote positive change. We want to work to enhance the relationships between the community and members of the Division of Police.

This is event is FREE and is sponsored by the Kappa Gamma Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated. kgschapter

 

#VolunteerInCLE Pop-Up Welcome Party, Sat 4/25

cle

I wanted to share an opportunity brought to you by Destination Cleveland, a private non-profit organization whose mission is to drive economic impact and stimulate community vitality for Greater Cleveland through leisure and business travel. They provide a lot of ways for Clevelanders to show pride and to show those not so familiar all the city has to offer as a tourism spot:

On Saturday morning, April 25th, we will be holding a Pop-Up Welcome Party for a group of students from Canada touring Cleveland. Our welcome will take place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and we will be gathering there at 10 am.

For those of you who are new, all you need to do is show up, wear something celebrating Cleveland, say “Welcome!” and hold a sign that we will provide for you. It’s really easy, a lot of fun, and we’ll probably be wrapped up by 10:30 am. If you have kids or a pet that you’d like to bring, you are welcome to do so.

Weather permitting, we will be outside. If it rains, we may move inside the lobby of the Rock Hall, in which case, please do not bring pets.

These welcomes are a great way to show our pride and make an impression on visitors. Guests are always impressed by the welcome, and many take pictures, or want pictures taken with the welcome group. Frequently, we hear the comment, “No other city did that for us!” And that’s what makes Cleveland special!

Please note, this welcome will take place outside the Rock Hall and does not include admission, but we do encourage you to spend the day if you are able.

Please let me know that you’ll be joining us by e-mailing eembacher@destinationcle.org as soon as possible.

I think I will participate in this activity; hopefully I’ll see some familiar faces 🙂

YP CLE Ambassador Summit, Thurs 10/23

cle

Hi everyone! I feel like it’s been a minute since I posted something, my apologies! I’ve been volunteering of course, raising money, sick (I’m better now-I need to slow down!), welcoming new additions to the family, celebrating birthdays, and more volunteering!
Now back to it…here’s an upcoming event that I signed up for. The main focus is gathering ideas on how to better attract people to visiting this awesome city of Cleveland. Seeing as how active I get around town with volunteering/events, I hope to provide some good dialogue and soak up good ideas! I know there are a lot of you who don’t know all that Cleveland has to offer and this is a great opportunity to gain some insight as well as network for the future.

Positively Cleveland its hosting a first-ever Young Professional Summit on Thursday October 23rd, from 3:30pm-7:00PM. Here is some background on what to expect:

Cleveland is the home of world-class art, culture and rock and roll. It’s a mix of sophistication and grit, artistry and industry, healthcare and sports. But did you know that only 34 percent of those who live here would recommend Cleveland as a place to visit?
Join us at our first-ever Young Professional CLE Ambassador Summit to share what you think would help encourage more local residents to recommend Cleveland as a visitor destination.
Network, brainstorm and bring your ideas to life with other millennial Clevelanders who eat, sleep and breathe CLE and are passionate about telling the Cleveland story. We know you have strong opinions, so we need you to speak up, sign up and shine a light on what you love about our city.
