Wonderlust Friday Forum: At-risk youth in the Gallatin Valley
- Friday, September 9, 2016 from 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Join Wonderlust, a lifelong learning organization affiliated with MSU's Extended University, for a free Friday Forum.
We tend to live in a Bozeman bubble of economic growth, exceptional recreational opportunities, excellent school system, a quality university, and happy people. But there is an underlining current that many of us aren’t even aware of – youth who are at-risk and suffering for a variety of reasons. Instead of being immune to it, we are just like in other cities and towns across the country. Join Wonderlust and the Bozeman Library Foundation for the first Friday Forum of the fall on Friday, Sept. 9, 12-1:00pm to hear from a panel of local folks who are working on this issue in our community. We’ll hear from representatives working with at-risk and homeless youth from Big Sky Youth Empowerment, Bozeman School District, HRDC, and others. Learn the scope of the issues, the actions being taken to alleviate the suffering, and the people working to make Bozeman a more compassionate and empathetic community to this growing problem.
This program is part of the One Book – One Bozeman series, based on the book by Wes Moore, “The Work: Searching for a Life that Matters.” The community is encouraged to read this powerful book about risk-taking, overcoming odds, mentorship, leadership, and public service through the author’s experiences, as well as other people who have struggled to find meaning and purpose in life. For more information about Wonderlust, this free panel discussion, or the One Book program, please contact Paula at 582-2426.
Friday Forum is a monthly speaker series sponsored by Wonderlust and hosted by the Bozeman Library Foundation.
Free and open to the public
