Curing the Epidemic: Rewriting the Story of the Fatherless Generation
April 6, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On Saturday, April 6, Dr. John Sowers will be coming to the Carlisle Brethren in Christ church to talk about the impact of fatherlessness on our communities and how we can mitigate the negative effects of fatherlessness by stepping into the lives of others. Dr. Sowers is the President of The Mentoring Project, Author of the Fatherless Generation: Redeeming the Story, and has been named a White House Champion of Change.
The event will be the highlight of a weekend of events planned by the Carlisle Family YMCA. On Friday, April 5 the Harrisburg Senators will be featuring the Mentoring Project and Dr. Sowers will throw out the first pitch at the game. Tickets for the baseball game can be purchased from the Y with a portion of the proceeds going toward mentoring (vouchers can be used for any game during the season). The Y collaborates with the Mentoring Project, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and local churches to host a mentoring initiative locally. On Sunday, April 7, Dr. Sowers will be speaking at Engage Community Church on the same issue.
While the keynote event on April 6 is free, participants are asked to reserve their seat atwww.justshowingup.org.
