Who should attend?

The event is titled For a Real Change and Friends because For a Real Change understands the importance of relationships and values all of the families, volunteers, sponsors and community leaders that support our programs. This event welcomes parents/guardians of youth in our programs or parents/guardians of youth interested in our programs. We welcome businesses, organizations, and individuals who have sponsored our programs or who serve as partners with our programs. This is also a great opportunity for educators to learn more about ways to get their youth involved.
