Friends of the Hawthorne Huddle,
On March 2nd, we will focus on the Positive Corridors for Youth Project. This Project is led by the Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board in partnership with Roosevelt High School, Hennepin County, the Minneapolis Health Department and Minneapolis Parks. The Project aims to teach individuals, agencies, businesses and communities to use principles and strategies that prevent or de-escalate stressful situations and create more welcoming environments for children, young people, families and adults. It is based on a successful model developed in Ramsey County called The Wakenheza Project.
Positive Corridors for Youth will extend to North Minneapolis in the next year.
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.
