There are many advantages to partnerships in the community, especially in the area of community awareness. The Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission, with the assistance of the Arkansas Department of Human Services, has implemented a program that is designed to encourage youth ages 10 to 17 to engage in positive leadership development and roles within their communities. Therefore, the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission will host “Nonviolence Youth Summit Part VII – Anti-Bullying Conference” on Friday, October 5, 2012 from 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM at East Arkansas Community College (EACC), 1700 Newcastle Road, Forrest City, AR 72335. This event is free and open to all, but prior confirmation of attendance is requested Lunch will be provided for free to all attendees.
These summits are structured to educate the youth on the principles of Kingian Nonviolence and other important issues so that they can become ambassadors of peace and face the violence within their communities. These summits allow our youth the opportunity to attend seminars on professional development, leadership, Arkansas history, crime prevention, and so much more. Our mission is to reach youth in all corners of the state. We have had great success in holding Nonviolence Youth Summits Parts I, II, III, IV, V, and VI which garnered the attendance of approximately 500 youth per event. Part I was held in West Memphis (January 2010); Part II in Pine Bluff (May 2010); Part III in Fayetteville (October 2010); Part IV in Little Rock (May 2011); Part V in Hope (October 2011); and Part VI in Harrison (February 2012). Please visit www.ARKingDream.org for photos and more details about the Nonviolence Youth Summits.
Therefore, we cordially invite seventy-five (75) students and adult chaperons to out “Nonviolence Youth Summit Part VII – Anti-Bullying Conference”. We ask that you RSVP by email to email@example.com – Program Coordinator with a list of those attending and participating as well as a signed form waiving the AMLKC of any liability (which is attached at the end of this document) as soon as possible, so that everyone who attends will be accommodated accordingly with a free lunch.
