Color Me Confident Youth Summit planned for May 7

The iWill Mentorship Foundation (IWMF), a FutureMakers Coalition partner, is hosting its Color Me Confident 2016 Youth Summit on May 7, 2016 at 10am at the Stars Complex at 2980 Edison Ave. in Fort Myers.

The 2016 Youth Summit will provide a forum for students aged 12 – 18, their parents and community leaders to learn about attending college, scholarship opportunities and financial aid as well as to network and share positive experiences.

The goal is to equip youth in the community with essential skills to ensure their success as they attend college and as future leaders. The mission is to inspire, empower, support, and expand the possibilities of today’s youth.

In addition to local youth aged 12 to 18, local government, church leaders, community organizations, law enforcement, educators, and families are invited to attend.

A representative from Concordia College will be in attendance and will conduct college band auditions for scholarships. Students who play a band instrument are encouraged to bring their instrument and be prepared to play a solo.

The event is being sponsored by Wells Fargo.

IWMF is a not-for-profit corporation that empowers youth to make positive life choices through community-based mentoring and intensive evidence-based programs focused on increasing academic achievement, decreasing youth criminal activity and strengthening the family structure.

The FutureMakers Coalition is one of Lumina Foundation’s 75 national Community Partners in Attainment. Residents are encouraged to join and support this community-changing initiative. For more information, visit
