The Westside Ministers Coalition starts its Youth Spring Break event today. The program, which consists of seminars ranging from health awareness and college readiness to time management and financial literacy, runs through Wednesday.
“The main purpose of this week is to change lives, resulting in changing the world by providing Chicagoland youth with life principles for success while on spring break,” said Phalese Binion, chairwoman of the Westside Ministers Coalition.
The 15-year program, running from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will include materials, entertainment, free food and job placement. The program also intends to expose youth to a variety of events about keeping the peace and various alternatives to violence.
