Our students are working to raise funds to attend a youth conference, December 26-30, 2012 in Atlanta, GA!
The Contee Youth Group is an organization dedicated to helping youth in the Washington DC area develop spiritually, academically and professionally. We are a whose main goal is to help students develop into succesful and impactful leaders in their communities.
The student group has been a positive impact to all youth involved as well as in the Greater Washington area. We participate in community service activities to benefit those less fortunate such as:
We challenge our students to make a positive and impactful change in their communities. In order to better prepare our students to have bright futures, we attend college fairs, college campuses and hold panel discussions and debates on current events, political and economic issues.
We thank you for your participation and partnership with us in our new endeavor to raise funds to attend a youth conference in Atlanta, GA (December 26-30, 2012). During this event the students will take tours of college campuses such as Spelman College, Morehouse College, Georgia Tech, etc., and go on cultural tours to sites like the home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
This conference will help teach our students how to become effective leaders in their communities and allow them the opportunity to engage in a valuable cultural exchange. They will be equipped with valuable tools on how to better manage their time, resist negative peer pressure, how to positively influence others and how to become a catalyst for positive change!
Our students have been working diligently in their fundraising efforts but we need your help in this new initiative to reach our final goal! (Please note that all donations are tax deductible and will list Contee AME Zion Church as the initial recipent). For donations beginning at $350, please make sure to include your mailing address to receive a special gift.
