The Power Promise Organization is proud to announce the “I HAVE THE POWER!!” Community Education & Awareness Teen Summit held on May 17, 2013 at 5:30 pm and on May 18, 2013 at 11:00 am. This will be a 2 day conference for youth and families in the Pine Hills Community. This is the 3rd year the Power Promise Organization has hosted the Teen Summit. In the past two years we have drawn in hundreds of students, bringing awareness to community issues and providing character education workshops. Thanks to our sponsors, each student received a hot meal and a book bag full of school supplies. This year the Power Promise Organization will partner with the Evans Community School and Greater Orlando Cares Mentoring Group.
With the help of grants and corporate donors including Wal-Mart, Orlando Magic, Chick-Fil-A, Papa John’s, Orange County Sheriffs’ Office, Publix, Orlando Solar Bears, Coca-Cola, PizzaHut, Bubbalou’s Bodacious BBQ, the Power Promise Organization has been able to do more than just the Annual Teen Summit. Since 2008 the Power Promise Organization has served over 500 youth and over 200 parents in the Central Florida community.
