Be The Change
Launched in 2011 by Alderman Ashanti Hamilton, in partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools and Potawatomi Bingo Casino, the Be the Change program is a new youth initiative designed to provide wrap-around mentoring, leadership and literacy support for targeted Milwaukee youth. Be the Change engages young men transitioning from eighth to ninth grade, and is designed to improve academic outcomes through explorations of culturally relevant literature and daily writing practice during the summer months. The academic enrichment portion of the program is complemented by community partner-led components in leadership and reaching one’s full potential.
