Sneak Peek: Promise Parent and Youth Advisory “Partnering for Success!”

Promise Parent and Youth Advisory “Partnering for Success!”

The Promise Parent and Youth Advisory Committee members will be giving a panel presentation at the Wisconsin Summer Inclusion Institute on July 25th in Wausau. In June, the Promise Youth and Family Advisory Committees met in Milwaukee to talk about their experiences, goals, and what it takes work in partnership to achieve school, employment, and life goals.

Through a mix of fun, interactive activities and serious discussions, the panel prepared to share their perspective on what it takes for youth, families, schools, and service providers to Partner for Success!

Here’s a sneak peek:
