Join the YEF on April 30 and meet Dwayne Reed!

Not sure how to keep your kids active during the summer? You’re not alone! We’ve invited Dwayne,
a Chicago K-8 teacher and the personality behind the viral video, “Welcome to the Fourth Grade,” to
about what is known as the “brain-drain” of summer, and speak about how we as parents can
keep our kids from giving into it. Summer doesn’t mean our minds must turn to mush!

We’ll also host a vendor and activities fair to help you connect with local businesses and organizations
to find great activities for your kids! Entry is free!

RSVP on Facebook
