Stroudsburg, PA – ESHS South Cavalier Justice Academy students, in partnership with Youth Infusion, Inc., will present “You Raised Me Right!” – a service-learning event addressing child abuse – at the Sherman Theater on Main Street in Stroudsburg on Monday, January 16th, Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service. The community event will take place from 6:30pm to 9pm.
Tiffani Dickison, a student involved in the semester-long project, says, “I think that our actions will teach many that children should be taken serious(ly)…I think it will help people be more aware of what is going on and why it’s wrong.” The event will include student-made educational short films on various sub-topics of child abuse, a spoken word performance in honor of Dr. King, and musical performances.
Before the community event, which begins at 6:30pm, a dinner will take place at the Sherman Theater to honor parents who have raised their children right! Students received nominations from their classmates and will award winning parents and family members.
