On Monday, March 27, 2017,  WINGS Atlanta's Executive Director Denise Blake was honored to attend a convening of 50 representatives from youth-serving organizations in the Atlanta metro area. Hosted by Youth Today, along with GUIDE, Inc., and Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation/Live Healthy Gwinnett, Atlanta-area thought leaders in rich conversation about youth development. 

Key topics included: preparing staff to serve diverse populations, honoring youth voices, and establishing partnerships. The conversation was particularly topical in light of the proposed federal budget, which would reduce or eliminate some of the resources currently provided to youth-serving groups. 


Outcomes from the convening will be used to help inform Youth Today’s editorial content and impact.

About Guide, Inc.GUIDE’s mission is to mobilize and equip the Gwinnett community with the information and strategies needed to promote positive youth development, improve community conditions and address other issues associated with substance use and abuse.
