Dear CDF friend,
I hope all is well with you! I am reaching out to share about our upcoming Samuel DeWitt Proctor Institute for Child Advocacy Ministry.
Each year clergy, seminarians, Christian educators, young adult leaders and other faith-based advocates participate in our Proctor Institute for Child Advocacy Ministry to make a difference to end child poverty and dismantle the Cradle to Prison Pipeline. This institute is an opportunity for spiritual renewal, networking, movement-building workshops, and continuing education about the urgent needs of children at the intersection of race and poverty.
The dates for this year’s Proctor Institute are July 17-21, 2017, and we host it in CDF’s Haley Farm in Clinton, Tennessee. Attached we have our postcard and application. Visit our website for more information and use this link to register.
There are a few scholarship opportunities available for youth and community advocates interested in attending Proctor! If you or someone you know is interested in this scholarship opportunity, please email me and I will share more details.
I am reaching out hoping to partner with you to share this great resource! We would like to know if it would be possible to:
- Share the information among your networks
- Help us identify potential young leaders (18-30) that may want to apply to the scholarship. There are limited spots and we would love to have NYC leaders be able to take advantage of this great opportunity!
Please let me know if this would be possible! Interested participants can reach out to me for any questions or if they would like to learn more about this training.
All my best,
Giovanna M. Romero Director of Programs and Youth Leadership Development Children’s Defense Fund-NY 15 Maiden Lane, Suite 1200 New York, NY 10038 p (212) 697-1457 f (212) 697-0566 e [email protected]
