The REACH Edmonton AGM Showcase is taking place next month.

The theme of this year’s event is “Empowering the leader within” and it will draw attention to youth programs.

The event is emceed by Mark Connolly and will start off with dinner and networking; the public will have the opportunity to mingle with REACH employees and clients. It will finish off with a showcase celebration.

In between, there will be a panel speaking about the Police Youth Engagement Program. Panelists are youth coordinators Andrew Jimega and Luna Ghebermicael, Terry Rocchio from Edmonton Police Services and teacher Rand Juff. During the evening, there will also be a performance by spoken word poet Timiro Mohamed.

REACH is Edmonton’s Council for Safe Communities and it involves members of the public in making their community a better place to live in. The organization has several programs that work with youth. Students can earn high school credits by working with the organization to foster a positive relationship with the police while developing leadership skills.

This event is free to attend and is likely to attract those in Edmonton who look to improve their community. Local print shops often help publicize events like this by providing marketing materials such as flyers.

The REACH Edmonton AGM Showcase will be held at the Central Lions Recreational Centre on June 7 from 4:30 to 7:30 PM. For more information, call 780-498-1231.
