Dec 09, 2023 11:30 AM Journie: Graduation Class of Fall 2023 We have reached a milestone in our journey 🎓 RSVP to join us: journieproject@gmail.com. Our youth who suffer trauma in various ways have successfully completed the 8 Steps to Promotion Workshop. The workshop is an 8 week program that focuses on life skills. Despite the challenges they continue to face at home and in society they continued dedicating their time to personal growth. Because of that, we want to acknowledge their hard work and efforts by giving them memorable experiences outside of their local neighborhoods to expand their creative conscience. An investment in our youth is an investment in our future. Help us celebrate our local future leaders. Support our graduate field trip by donating to our GiveMN fundraiser link in our bio. This program is made possible by our amazing sponsors at @uwolmsted @125livemn ('youth', 'Education', 'diversity', 'key')
