Coolidge, AZ, September, 2011
Are you the parent of high school students?
Do you know students that are confused about graduation?
Do they know how to go about getting into college?
Are they anxious about their career path?
Do you worry about such things?
Don’t because Be a Leader Foundation can help.
This foundation is designed to provide students with a positive learning environment that includes leadership skills, tools and knowledge. Students become college bound, focused, and prepared. Community mentors and staff work directly with middle school and high school students in primarily inner-city schools in Phoenix.
Be a Leader Foundation invites students from Pinal County to participate. Local mentors drive students to the sessions.
The next meeting is Saturday, September 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Arizona State University Downtown Mercado campus. This will be followed by a tour of College Depot at the Burton Barr Phoenix Public Library at 2:30 p.m. Then the group will visit Modern Mexican Art from the Blaisten Collection: Self and Nation presented at the Phoenix Art Museum. The exhibit closes on September 25, 2011. Tickets are $10/Adults, $8/Seniors (65+) and Students, $4/Youth (6-17). A free performance of Ballet under the Stars presented by Ballet Arizona at Steele Indian School Park will commence at 7:00 p.m.

The plan is to fill cars, trucks, and vans with students and drive to downtown Phoenix. Parking is free at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus, housing both Arizona State University and the University of Arizona programs on North Fifth Street and Van Buren.
