In a collaborative effort to reclaim and redirect challenged youth, the cycle of violence, and promote unity in communities, the Educational Leaders for Change (ELC) Collaborative continues its efforts to develop initiatives to foster change within our communities, homes, and schools.

In the wake of the numerous crisis, chaotic, and violent situations that have affected the Savannah community as well as communities throughout the United States, Educational Leaders for Change (ELC) Collaborative request you to embrace this very important initiative. ELCC with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Savannah Alumnae Chapter, and others will join the 12th Annual “BREAKTHROUGH: An Explosion of Parent Unity in the Community” Celebration, August 13, 2016 through August 15, 2016 at the ConEd Building (714 MLK, Jr. Blvd.) in its effort to foster change within our communities.

The three-day event will provide a foundation for parents, families, and friends to take a stand and “get involved” with children at home, at school, and in the community. It is the goal of ELC Collaborative to create awareness for the much needed cry for “parental involvement” by collaborating with parents, leaders, organizations, and all others concerned by disseminating information, gathering needed data, providing support, guidance, and an educational forum that will positively impact the growth and development of our family and youth.

In order to bring this annual event to fruition, ELC Collaborative requests the support of churches, businesses, community groups, schools, and other organizations to join the three day event. It is an investment in the success of our children, families, schools and communities.

Your valued input is greatly appreciated. In order to positively touch parents and students in all communities and continue our quest to make a difference in their lives, we must become an involved community. Parental and community involvement equals student success. Let’s stop talking and join the JOURNEY for a better tomorrow for our families children, schools and communities.
