When Julie Munjack, Executive Director of Core Educational Services, shared with me her passion delivering innovative programs to at risk teens with the goal of increasing their self confidence, communication skills, teamwork and community… I was like, WOW! I am in, how can I help?
Within hours of meeting Julie, I received an e-mail about CORE and 48 hours later I was recruited to help with a FUNdraising event they are having at 3110 Main Street in Santa Monica.
The theme: “Race for Education.”
What CORE Educational Services does is real. Check out their Facebook Page. I believe it. They provide hands-on opportunities for students to explore their strengths and follow their inspiration in high school. Many of you don’t know this, but I am a product of a similar organization called Inroads. Inroads provided me hand-on tools and opportunities to explore my strengths and to follow my inspiration. I could not have done (and expect to do) what I have accomplished thus far without their early in career help and support.
As such, I would like to positively impact CORE’s Race for Education initiative and need your help to increase and broaden educational opportunities for older youth. I am asking for two things:
- Come to the Race for Education on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 at 3110 Main Street. It’s going to be a great event to mix and mingle and bid on amazing things.
- If you have your 200 or 500 hour yoga certification, please donate one hour of your time to do either a Private or a Partner Yoga Lesson. Please contact me at angel [dot] cruzado [at] gmail [dot] com for details.
Certificates will be printed with YOUR NAME and marketed at the event (and, get this, this may lead to some private sessions with new clients)
Thank you for your support in making this a great event and for encouraging your colleagues, family and friends to attend the Race for Education.
