This is the graduation ceremony for the women enrolled in the Talk to Me program. By the end of the semester, the women have explored their past and envisioned a future — a future in which they become the change they want to see in the world. At graduation, all program participants are invited to creatively express what they discovered while on the Talk to Me journey. You will bear witness to some stories, as well as a wide range of creativity, from skits to spoken word to movement and song. After their presentations, the women receive graduation certificates in recognition of their hard work. Your role as a volunteer is to serve as a Respectful Witness on their special day.
Deadline to sign up: May 19
Participants must be at the facility by 4:50pm for security clearance and brief volunteer orientation. Carpooling from Austin is available and requires an earlier meetup of 2:30pm in North Austin. You may choose to go to dinner as a group afterward, returning to Austin by 10:30pm.
