The Longview NAACP will hold a free 1 hour “Be the U in Education” Workshop on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 6pm at the Broughton Recreation Center, 801 Martin Luther King Blvd. This workshop will provide parents with tips and suggestions to assist them with their children’s education. The workshop will begin with an overview entitled “It Starts with U – Parents, School, Community”.

Participants will then choose 2 of 3 sessions to attend. The sessions are “Help from Home = Success in School” (elementary grades), “Help from Home = Success in School” (secondary grades), and “Be and Advocate for your Child = Success in School” (student expectations). Each session will be led by educators from all aspects of academia. Due to limited seating, advanced registration is required. For more information

Since 1909, the NAACP has been supported by countless members that have led the fight for freedom, justice and equality. Members forge a better future each and every day for men, women and children. NAACP membership makes a positive difference in the lives of Americans, and provides an opportunity to become an important part of a network of hundreds of thousands of advocates across the country affectionately known as “members.”

The Longview NAACP meets the third Thursday of each month at The Downtown Meeting Place at 6:30pm. The meetings are open to the public.
