In our last blog we told you about the workshops we had coming up with Harlem Children’s Zone and Newark Now’s Family Success Center. Both workshops got rave reviews and we would love to share them with you.
One November 9th we visited the Coutee Cullen site within the Harlem Children’s Zone family of sites. Along with Chike Uzoka we conducted 3 workshops with a 3rd grade class, 7th grade class and some staff members. A 22 year old staff member commented that the workshop kept her engaged and she learned that more money doesn’t mean you can save more.
On November 10th we visited The Family Success Center at Bradley Court, Newark NJ is directed by Chesa Hodge of Newark Now. She recently stated, “It is very pleasing to know that most of the participants really came away with some new and enlightening information regarding saving and bank aspects.” A 14 year old 9th grader took away from the workshop that it showed them different ways they can save their money.
We at D.R.E.A.M. Inc. are really excited about those workshops we recently conducted and look forward to the developments with those organizations going forward.
