The Llano Grande Center, in collaboration with State Farm Insurance, is hosting “A Community Platica,” an event aimed at bringing together local people to talk about ways of making the Delta Area stronger.
The Platica, being held from 1-5 p.m. on December 11 at Edcouch-Elsa High School, is free and open to the public to attend. In particular, the Llano Grande Center is asking alumni from Edcouch-Elsa, La Villa and Monte Alto to be a part of the conversation.
The purpose of the Community Platica is to bring together local alumni, community members, educators, parents and youth to explore issues affecting our community and to create an action plan for improving conditions for the benefit of all Delta Area residents. Our goals for this event include:
o Open and mindful conversations;
o Strengthened relationships and partnerships;
o Identified action steps for strengthening the community; and
o A plan for ongoing engagement and communication.
Over the past 20 years, the Llano Grande Center has worked with the community to create opportunities for young people to become engaged citizens and powerful leaders. We’ve used strategies such as youth-adult partnerships, service-learning and collective leadership in our efforts and we’d like to invite you to join us chart a path forward.
We believe local experiences and expertise are extremely valuable and will enrich this Community Platica and its outcome. To RSVP for this event or if you have questions, contact Delia Pérez at 956-262-4474.
