NEW AT THE HUDDLE!
Monthly Huddle meetings now feature a materials-sharing table – please feel free to bring info you’d like to share – please also take back with you any materials not picked up by 9am, after people have had a chance to look over the info table. Thank you! Please refrain from passing out informational materials during the meeting (unless you are a presenter).
Friends of the Hawthorne Huddle,
On February 2nd we will focus on the PEACE Project in Minneapolis. The PEACE Project is led by the City of Minneapolis in partnership with Minneapolis Public Schools, Hennepin County, MPLS Police, MPLS Fire, 911, City Attorney and Hennepin County Medical Center. The program aims to increase the number of high-risk Minneapolis youth that graduate from high school and enter the workforce or pursue training or post-secondary education in a justice or emergency services career. The project will serve 125 students in grades 11 and 12; 50 in year one, 75 in year two.
The Hawthorne Huddle will be held from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. in the Multipurpose Room at Fairview Park, 621 29th Avenue North. A continental breakfast will be available at 7:15 a.m.
