It is with great enthusiasm that the Community Foundation of South Alabama and the David Mathews Center for Civic Life look forward to better understanding the distinctive assets and challenges of Mobile County from the viewpoint of young residents. A local forum will take place at the Optimist Boys & Girls Club on April 5th at 4PM.
The forum is being convened by the Boys & Girls Club of South Alabama and will be moderated by David Mathews Center staff members.
The Community Foundation of South Alabama and the David Mathews Center for Civic Life greatly anticipate working with local communities across southwest Alabama to deliberate through the issues affecting youth during the “Charting Our Course” forum series. This forum series will provide participants a venue to identify both the opportunities provided to local youth, as well as the challenges youth still face, so that participants can actively and productively engage in creating workable solutions in their communities.
