“How does this group make the jump from conversation to collaboration?”
“I hope there will be enough time to build the relationships and figure out the focal point of our objectives.”
“I'm intrigued by the idea put out at the end that perhaps we could come together to ‘do work.’"
Okay, we hear you! Thanks to those who came and gave feedback following our inaugural meeting. We’re excited to invite you to the second meeting, this time at Brooklyn Navy Yard. We want to dive into topics that are most useful for attendees and the youth we all serve. Our hope is that those discussions will lay the groundwork for concrete initiatives we can begin working on together.
But who is going to decide what we talk about? Well, you, of course. Please reply to this email with ideas about specific topics you’d like to see us explore in depth. We’ll compile the list and shoot back to everyone to pick the three that we’ll focus on.
*Please plan your trip to the corner of Flushing/Carlton, as the address of the Brooklyn Navy Yard sometimes directs you incorrectly. Building 92 is publicly accessible from the Street. You do not need to go through BNYDC security.
