June 2011: Contribution to The Purple Project
The Aegean Organization is proud to announce its contribution to The Purple Projects 2nd Annual Youth and Foster Care Conference in Cleveland, Ohio held from June 23rd 2011 to June 25th 2011.
We donated 180 RNP brand tee shirts including best sellers like the adorable Octopi tee shirt and the super trendy Love Is Blind tee shirt. The event was held at Cleveland States Joseph E. Cole Center and was focused on helping older members of the youth community in the foster care system.
As the population of youth who age out of the foster care system grows, there is an increasing need for education and resources aimed at helping to establish and prepare our youth for a successful entry into society. All Aboard The Discovery Train To Independence, A Foster Youths Journey will offer interactive seminars, workshops, panel sessions, and exhibits dedicated to addressing the needs of youth who are on the path to aging out of the foster care system or who are currently enrolled in an independent living program. As an added bonus, there will also be opportunities to reflect on the accomplishments of our youth at our 2nd Annual Gala and Award Ceremonies at The Hard Rock Caf and The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame; featuring 2009 inductee and Emmy Award Winner Darryl DMC McDaniels of Run DMC, Author, Motivational Speaker, and Financial Literacy Coach Shay Olivarria and local dignitaries. Please join us with local dignitaries and hundreds of youth, foster care alumni, advocates, and professionals as we support and strengthen our youth who are in care.
