This motivational summit, organized by Spiritual Community Animator Vince Lacroce, Perspectives staff members Stefano Castricato and Diana Borges, along with Creations Marketing PR Owner Christina Capobianco and Joseph Ruvo of Les Delices Lafrenaie, is a collaborative effort involving local community leaders, professionals, and influencers who are passionate about uplifting the youth in the community. The intent of this event will provide outreach high school students with valuable guidance and inspiration to unlock their full potential as they navigate through the challenges of life and education.
The program will unfold via sessions at 9:30 am , 10:30 am, 11:15 am and 12:40 pm.
