The St. Louis Park community has been intentionally focusing on the healthy development of its young people for 15 years. Come celebrate the 15th anniversary of Children First on Thursday, September 25, 7-9 p.m., at the Doubletree Park Place Hotel. Thanks to the generosity of our corporate sponsor Japs-Olson Company.
Be part of this special gathering that will:
• Bring together those in St. Louis Park committed to the healthy development of our children and teens.
• Inform about the latest research on “Sparks” from Search Institute.
• Highlight activities of Children First, the first healthy communities initiative in the country that has spread to more than 600 communities!
• Include fun, food and a time to connect with others.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about Dr. Benson’s new research and book: Sparks! How parents can help ignite the hidden strengths of teenagers. Dr. Benson, a leading authority on childhood and adolescence, will describe a simple yet powerful plan for awakening the spark that lives inside each and every young person. Sparks, when illuminated and nurtured, give young people joy, energy, and direction.
It’s never too early to encourage the spark in a child’s life, so join us no matter how old the children in your life are!
The event is co-presented with St. Louis Park Schools Parent Academy. The registration fee is $10 per adult and $5 per young people. Reservations can be made online at: http://www.slpcommunityed.com/
