While the debate over adding another layer of government and taxes with the proposed Leon County Children’s Services Council continues, numerous privately funded organizations are in the business of providing direct services to children and youth.
The Shadetree Group based in Gretna, Florida has been providing hands-on learning opportunities for thousands of children of all ages since 2006. This remarkable life-affirming organization exists to affirm the dignity of the under-resourced and empower them to transform their lives and their community.
The Shadetree Group Director Destiny Tolbert will talk with Brien about her personal journey and the inspiring stories of young people who have grown under her leadership over the last seven years.
Destiny has a passion for positive youth development and has served in various roles such as mentor, coach, and youth minister over her adult life.
In his support of the Leon County Children’s Services Council proposal, Mayor John Dailey brings his perspective on how to best meet the needs of local citizens, namely through governmental programs.
From an earlier conversation, then County Commissioner Daily will talk with Brien about what he considers to be the most pressing issues we face as a community, and how we should address them.
