Join us for the 2017 KIAMSHA DROPOUT PREVENTION SUMMIT on APRIL 8, 2016 - 9:30AM - 5:00PM
Kiamsha, Swahlili for "that which awakens me“, is a youth empowerment organization for youth in grades 8th-12th that motivates our youth to invest in their communication, presentation, leadership and workshop development skills. Kiamsha’s mission is to use a combination of history and peer and intergenerational interaction, to empower youth to abstain from pre-marital sex, drugs, violence and prejudice. These principles help develop their workshop and presentation skills in preparation for their annual summit in which the youth create and present their own workshops to their peers.
Attendees will be exposed to several interactive workshops, enjoy a healthy lunch and have the opportunity to win great door prizes.
For highlights from last year’s event and event updates, please follow us on social media:

COLORISM AND ITS EXISTENCE

This event is sponsored by The Impact Group, LLC, Bowie State Student Alumni Association and Hewlett Packard Enterprise DC Black Employee Network
