The Hungry Club Forum of Savannah, Inc. (HCFS) will again hold a youth issues forum entitled “When We Plant A Seed: What Lasting Gifts Can We Give to the Youth of Our Community?,” on Saturday December 1, 2018 at 9:30 AM, in the Multipurpose Room of the WBS YMCA, located at 1110 May Street in Savannah, GA.
In 2009, the HCFS Board of Directors made the decision to revisit annually this youth- focused session which has proven motivational and inspirational to many members of the community in recent years. A panel of advocates and professionals with handson experience and expertise has been invited to share visions, track records and recommendations for those engaged in working with the youth of the community, as well as those laymen who are interested in lending financial and human resources toward youth development. According to Diana Harvey Johnson, a consultant to the Hungry Club Forum, we have also invited professionals who offer services to individuals and organizations in the areas of concern to those serving youth.

Invited to serve on the panel of experts and resource persons are: Longtime businessman and optometrist Dr. J. Alphonso Dandy, founder and CEO, Dandy Youth Development (DYDC), a 501(c) (3) US tax-exempt nonprofit organization, founded in 2015; Paul Fisher, Founder and President, Savannah Early
Childhood Foundation. Fisher, a retired corporate executive, has organized a dynamic coalition of entities in the Savannah area to support early childhood education and development, including support for Parent University; Kimberly G. Middleton, President, Hungry Club Forum of Savannah, has been asked to bring back her thought-provoking presentation on how to teach youth to handle contacts with law enforcement; and Araceli Harper, longtime community educator, organizer and advocate for the entire community, especially those of Hispanic origin and descent.
