The final week in Newark and website updates!

Kaleena Berryman

The Abbott Leadership Institute’s summer program ended on 8/31/20. During the final week, students worked on finalizing content development for the website. Final videos, poems and pictures were submitted. During the week of 8/31/20 the team of instructors and college mentors reviewed content and developed a preliminary outline for the website, which is still in development stage. There are five sections of the website (Healing/Learning/Working/Earning/Organizing) and each section has a goal of featuring five student artifacts in time for the launch event, scheduled for September 23rd. The website draft is to be completed by 9/16/20. The next steps are for students to submit photos and short bios for their features, and to collect media release forms from all interviewees. We are about 50% complete with design!
