Do you know what the JLC Speaker’s Bureau is all about?

The committee works to connect experts in our area with different groups in the community to help educate and empower Charlotte residents.  They have a number of initiatives they’re working on this year.

One of those major initiatives this year is focused on teaching local students about building self-esteem and preventing bullying. The committee has partnered with six local schools to connect community leaders with students. The anti-bullying messages are designed to fight against a problem that has gained attention both nationally and internationally.

Other events focus on health and wellness. On October 17 from 6:00-8:00pm they are hosting a panel discussion at the Buddy Kemp Cancer Support Center.  The event will focus on resources for breast cancer survivors and their families. For more information call 704-424-5050.
