Let's Thrive Baltimore's Summer Enrichment Program Celebration: Honoring Youth Leaders and Inspiring Success
Let's Thrive Baltimore recently commemorated the achievements of our summer enrichment program participants at a vibrant all-white event held at the Baltimore Center Stage, hosted by the esteemed Alumni Kortnei. The event, thoughtfully coordinated by our former student, now alumnus, James, was a splendid gathering that showcased inspiring guest speakers and acknowledged the exceptional dedication of youth leaders. These exceptional individuals not only trained and mentored youth ambassadors but also excelled in imparting crucial skills in conflict resolution, mediation, financial literacy, workforce development, entrepreneurship, mindfulness, and social skills.
Recognizing the exceptional efforts and leadership, we proudly awarded stipends and accolades totaling $9,500 to these outstanding leaders: Tyric, Sanaai, Katherine, Zion, Perryion, DAyona, Jhazarra, and James. Their remarkable commitment and contributions deserve this heartfelt recognition.
The event was graced by esteemed special guests, including luminaries such as Joni Holifield, the Founder of Heart Smiles MD, Uncle T, the Founder of Challenge 2 Change, along with the esteemed presence of Pastor Angelica Watts and Pastor Watts from Kingdom Life Church. The evening was further elevated by a captivating dance performance by the incredibly talented Sha’Miyae.
This celebration was made possible through the generous sponsorship of the Baltimore Children & Youth Fund, which enabled us to create an unforgettable evening of recognition and appreciation for the incredible dedication and hard work of our students and leaders.
