Philly Mochas Care- “Nurturing the Dream” Education Conference
“Explore the plethora of extra-curricular programs and courses available to prepare our “dreamers”
Philadelphia, PA – The Philadelphia Chapter of Mocha Moms, Inc. (MMPC), has made this initiative the driving force in our chapter’s outreach efforts. Dedicated to our children and their future, we have developed our 1st Annual Mocha Cares Education Conference, to take place Saturday, June 9, 2012, from 11am-4pm. This year’s topic, “Nurturing the Dream,” will explore the plethora of extra-curricular programs and courses available to prepare our “dreamers”
Committed to this mission, and driven by the spirit of community activism, Mocha Moms, Inc. adopted the initiative, “Closing the Gap on Minority Achievement,”
The late Whitney Houston said it best in her hit song, “Greatest Love of All,” when she quoted “the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.” However this is easier said than done; our children are the unfortunate victims of an imbalanced fiscal budget, where funds formerly used for quality staff and supplies have been used to bail out unethical business practices. Now, we put out a call to action as today’s youth need us the most they ever have before.
The event will take place at The Shipley School- Avery Silverman Dining Hall, 814 Yarrow St., Bryn Mawr, PA 19010 (Montgomery Avenue Entrance). There is a lot of opportunity for exposure as the venue is surrounded by many public and private education centers, recreational centers and countless citizens dedicated to advancing our children. We are expecting to attract over 150 attendees who will be ready to discuss the needs of their children.
