Youth Empowerment Summit June 24 & Town Hall Meeting on Public Safety on July 1

Anwan ‘Big G’ Glover to Moderate Youth Discussion on Making the Right Decisions and Conflict Resolution.

The Department of Family Services, Children, Youth and Families Division will host a free, one-day, Youth Empowerment

Summit at the Prince George’s Ballroom on June 24, 2014. The summit will feature a viewing of the 2012 Sundance Film Selection, Luv starring Common and Michael Rainey Jr., a coming-of-age story about an impressionable boy who gets a crash course in what it means to be a man after spending the day with his ex-convict uncle he idolizes. Participants will then get an opportunity to discuss the film in an open dialog moderated by actor and musician Anwan ‘Big G’ Glover from the HBO series, The Wire, and 12 Years a Slave. Anwan is also known for his long-time role as lead vocalist for the Washington, DC Go-Go Band, “The Backyard Band.”

The purpose of the Youth Empowerment Summit is to help youth make the right choices for a positive future. Exercises in conflict resolution and mediation awareness will be conducted by The Key Bridge Foundation, a conflict management provider that uses resolution strategies to encourage cooperation and problem solving for individuals and organizations.

Registration is required. Call 301-265-8446 to register. Due to the R rating of the film, Prince George’s County youth ages 13-17 must have signed parental consent. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
