Thank you for taking the time to read this recap of the 11th Let Your Voice Be Heard Community Forum that took place July 28th, 2017 at Three Masks Inc. We started the forums back in July of 2016 and now we have officially made it to the 1-year mark! We will have the next upcoming 12th meeting on August 31st, 2017 at the same location, Three Masks Inc., located at 1023 W. Colonial Dr. Orlando, FL. We will recap issues and initiatives that were brought up at the last forum and breakdown our upcoming events and what they consist of. We have a document with a breakdown of upcoming events for the month of August that follows this recap. The next Let Your Voice Be Heard Newsletter will be released on the 15th of the month. Our forums will take place on the last Thursday of every month and our recaps will begin to come out the first Thursday of the following month. The recap for the last forum can be found at www.letyourvoicebeheardinc.com/lyvbhforums07272017.
We will also be resuming our after-school outreach process in which we've could reach out to the youth after school on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and greet them with snacks and drinks and provide handouts with information for after school programs, mentoring, community service, social and health services for families and more.
This effort has shown to decrease the violence and crime occurrences that usually took place in the areas we perform outreach. This is a calculated measure done to help decrease the likeliness of horrific events occurring after school with the presence of adults and perform outreach to the youth by providing them with key information that can bring opportunities for young students, and help their family alleviate the stresses of life with assistance and services available, thus creating a better home environment for our youth also. This is a continuous effort with workshops during school days and outreach and check-ups afterschool. What we need:
* Printed Handouts
* Small packaged snacks
* Monetary donations for supplies
