Leadership Eatonville Session II

Leadership Eatonville is a six-session workshop series for town residents that will enhance community leadership and entrepreneurial skills. Each participant will select a specific community initiative – existing or new – to work on using the principles and practical tips learned in the sessions. The course is free for Eatonville residents. Non-residents may apply.

The workshop series will be held every other Thursday evening between August 10th and October 19th from 6:30pm to 9:00pm in the Denton Johnson Community Center (400 Ruffel St, Eatonville, FL 32751). Graduates of the program will be eligible for additional one-on-one coaching sessions in the winter that will help them attract investment in the initiative that they are working on.

The class schedule is as follows:
Thursday, August 10

Thursday, October 5
Thursday, October 19

((CANCELLED)) MVP Families July Mid-Month Meeting

In May we began mid-month MVP Families gathering for the MVP parents to focus in-depth on family goals and kids in our program to receive tutoring opportunities. We’re excited to be a part of this resident-led program and to help families in 32805 meet their academic, financial, and wellness goals. Mid-month meetings are located at the POLIS office and happen from 6:30-8:30pm.

Many of our MVP Families are spending the summer outdoors participating in summer camps and visiting the Orlando Science Center together in July. We’ll reconvene our regular monthly meetings on September 11th and would love to have you join us.
