FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
(LAS VEGAS) – Clark County’s Department of Family Services warmly invites community social workers and caregiver families to a free informational event on Friday, Dec. 13 from 9 a.m.to 12:30 p.m. at the Pearson Community Center in North Las Vegas. Anyone interested in learning about the many ways to support foster youth and their families is strongly encouraged to attend the event.
An inspirational panel of teens and caregiver families will be sharing their heartfelt stories led by motivational speaker Michael Sanders, who will educate, motivate and entertain the audience around the importance of supporting Clark County’s most vulnerable population.
Sanders’ motivational speaking career has spanned over 20 years, encouraging and inspiring teens and families throughout 46 states and five Canadian Provinces on the simple notion, “to be and do their best.”
“We are so ecstatic for the opportunity to hear Michael Sanders, a leader in our field, inspire, entertain, and lead us through an educational presentation,” said Clark County Human Services Administrator Tim Burch. “Our hope for this event, is that each and every social worker and community member, leaves the presentation with a little more room in their hearts for the children we work so hard to support.”
