Pembroke Pines, FL (October 31, 2019) – As part of a free and award-winning series, parents/guardians of school-age children, educators and youth advocates are invited to a special presentation, “Raising Positive Children: The Power of You(th),” focusing on “Re-Imagining Our Community.” It will be held at the Charles F. Dodge City Center, located at 601 City Center Way on Thursday, November 21, 2019 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. It will take a close look at key youth issues such as cyberbullying, family stress and feeling out of place in today’s society.

Special performances feature drummer extraordinaire Willie Stewart and his Rhythms in Conversations, and a 5th grade chorus of students from the Pembroke Pines Charter Schools.
This is the fifth in a series of presentations hosted by Pembroke Pines Vice Mayor Iris A. Siple, West Campus Charter School Principal Michael Castellano, the Education Roundtable Forum and the City of Pembroke Pines to call attention to and find solutions for the many issues parents and children face today at home and at school.
