How will you make it matter? This was the question posed to our Future Foundation’s Real Talk Ambassadors. The Georgia Teen Institute provided teens the space to become leaders in their own community. GTI is a week of fun and teamwork in a college setting. The week was filled with team meetings, new friends, challenging tasks, and activities.
Who would have known that we would have won so many awards at the Golden Pencil Awards? Chemari R. and Makeda P. won the fashion awards. Makeda P. also won the equality award for speaking out during team meetings. Who won the dancing award? That would be our own Real Talk Education Specialist – Rachel V. Smith. Congratulations!
Our time at GTI was filled with fun and memories that will be hard to forget. Our leaders came home with an amazing project to implement in their community. They decided that it was time to say something about the number of teen parents in our community. They have decided to hold an event during Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month in May. Be on the look out! We are going to make it matter by information teens in South Fulton County on the consequences of early parenting.
