Keep Akron Beautiful (KAB)

Please share with your learners, youth leaders, youth organizations and/or others that may be interested in applying or promoting the Youth Advisory Council.

Hate following the rules? Does your learner always as "Why"? Is your learner always looking for a way to do things "different"? Then, they just might be one of our community’s most powerful economic stimulants. We invite interested learners to join our Center for Entrepreneurial Learning on a field trip to University School. They will be introduced to other young entrepreneurs, and be enmeshed in culture of creation. Join us April 10, 2014 from 9am - 1pm. See Coach Bridenthal aisaacs@akron.k12.oh.us or Coach Rauschenberger brausche@akron.k12.oh.us for additional information.
