“Encourage yourself. It’s important when you have an understanding about where you want to go, sometimes you have to dig into what is already inside you when others may discourage you.” –Marlon McWilson
Educator, businessman, former Alameda County Board of Education board member and founder of the Community Giving Foundation, Marlon McWilson shared his journey and interacted with our youth and staff in an online leadership seminar. We discussed the importance of transparency, goals, self-reliance and knowing your circle and your base.
The Freedom Center continues to turn on a dime, increasing our online classes and sessions during the shelter-in-place order. We are bringing experts from around the world with feet-on-the-ground experience in organizing, civic engagement and public service together with our youth and staff.
This is an excellent time to study the relevance and importance of transforming ourselves to make change in the world.
