Exposure Trip to the Good Samaritan Health Center
March 2018 To kick off our Wellness programming, Speak Life students visited the Good Samaritan Health Center of Atlanta, GA. This experiential activity reinforced the importance of healthy eating and exercise covered in our sessions. Students were able to learn about the center’s urban organic farm, participate in an exercise routine, and help prepare a healthy meal. View pictures from our other college/exposure tours here.
Guest Speakers Motivate Students
February 2018 We were happy to have guest speakers Jaylin Myers and Brenda Usher motivate our students. Myers, a certified urban farmer and student at Tuskegee University, reinforced to students the value of dreaming big and having the discipline to reach their goals. Usher, former AT&T Account Executive and current real-estate agent, explained to students how her choice to forgo bad decisions in place of positive ones has led to her success.
