Participants of our Youth Leadership Training program partnered with the University District, UA Little Rock, and Oak Forest United Methodist Church to clean up a near-by neighborhood park during Keep Little Rock Beautiful.
This event was hosted by the University District organization as an annual service project arranged by trainees.
CI Youth worked primarily in the community garden by picking up trash, planting seeds, raking leaves, pulling weeds, cutting down vines, and tilling the garden. UA Little Rock CI provided garden tools, trash bags, and man-power with a total of 20 youth and parents participating in the clean-up!
FINANCIAL LITERACY WEEK
April 3rd – 7th is Financial Literacy Week at CI, and CI youth are partnering with the Arkansas State Treasury, TruService Community Federal Credit Union, the Clinton Foundation, Women’s Foundation, and Economics Arkansas to make this week informative, successful, as well as fun.
The apex of the week will be the 2017 Women’s Financial Health Summit on Wednesday, April 5 from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm at The Great Hall of the Clinton Presidential Center. This summit is designed to address women’s concerns surrounding saving, preparing for higher education expenses and retirement planning. And, more importantly, help women – of all ages – create an open dialogue around money, and why conversations about it is so taboo.
Our youth will serve as Youth Ambassadors, and one of our alumni will contribute their testimonial during the “Letters to My Younger Self” session of the summit.
To cap off the Financial Literacy week, our youth will host our monthly Game Night from 5pm to 7pm. This month’s theme is Casino Night! All games will teach risks vs. rewards, saving vs. spending concepts, and basic money counting.
Come out and bring the whole family! You don’t want to miss it!
