Join the Leaders for an Equitable Tomorrow (LET) program on Monday, March 25 for a panel discussion on “Healthy Approaches to Post-High School Pathways,” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club in Woburn.

The panel moderator is Crystal Haynes, a two-time Emmy nominated reporter, Senior Communications Director of United Way of Massachusetts Bay, and the host of GBH’s Greater Boston and Basic Black. 

The event is co-sponsored by the Network for Social Justice and Social Capital, Inc., which is based in Woburn.

Teens, parents, and community members are invited to gather valuable insights and strategies for maintaining positive mental well-being, achieving balance, and accessing effective support when navigating post-high school pathways.

The event will cover managing the stresses related to applying to college as well as healthy approaches to choosing from the many possible next steps for graduating high school students.

In a survey conducted by the LET high school interns about post-high school pathways, career clarity was a pressing challenge expressed by many of the 72 local high school participants.

To address these concerns, four panelists from diverse backgrounds will offer their insights and experiences, covering various post-graduation options. Panelists will share their career paths and educational backgrounds, including experiences in vocational school, community college, and 4-year universities.

Food and refreshments will be provided. RSVPs are requested so there is enough for everyone. Email Serey Kremer at skremer@socialcapitalinc.org to sign up.

The LET program is a joint initiative of SCI and Network for Social Justice (NFSJ) that seeks to advance mental health awareness and engagement among youth within, and beyond, Winchester and Woburn through a focus on the intersection of mental health and social justice.

Funding for LET is provided by Winchester Hospital Community Benefits.

The JLM Boys & Girls Club is joining SCI and NFSJ as partners for this important workshop.
