Parents are encouraged to bring their children, and grandparents, school counselors, educators and anyone that wants to make our community a safer place for kids should attend the series.
“Education is knowledge and power that help us to keep our kids safe,” said Sue Scheff, a local author and parent advocate. “Having three of the best speakers coming to St. Johns County is an honor and opportunity for everyone.”
The purpose of the Community Empowerment Series is to strengthen our community and enrich our parents, teachers and everyone working with our children to be safer and kinder- both online and off. This series is providing parents with how-to’s on some of the most important issues facing children today.
