The members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. recently held their North Atlantic Regional Conference in Philadelphia.I served as an (ahem) "Social Delegate" and enjoyed hanging with my Sorors tremendously.
All kidding and jokes aside, I also served as a workshop facilitator for the Emerging Youth Leaders Summit at the West Philadelphia YMCA. While it was a chilly day, the energy was infectious from both the children, the staff of the Y, and my Sorors who worked hard of developing a nice half day program. The workshops covered social media etiquette, dating violence prevention, conflict resolution, and bullying prevention.
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.'s Emerging Youth Leaders program aims to positively impact the lives of 10,000 girls in grades six through eight through direct involvement and skill building with the children. The idea is to provide leadership skills and academic preparation.
Congratulations to Dr. Tricia Bent-Goodley (pictured below who is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. International Program Committee) for coordinating a great event!
