Conversations with Marvin Pierre of Eight Million Stories

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 8 Av 5780

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

Join us on Wednesdays at noon for Conversations, as Program Director Jason Plotkin sits down with a member of the congregation, community or from the sports world to discuss the current state of affairs. 

This week's special guest is Marvin Pierre, the co-founder and executive director of Eight Million Stories, a non-profit started in 2017 which strives to transform the lives of vulnerable youth (14-18 years old) through education, skills training, employment and authentic relationships.

During our conversation, we will explore the change that Marvin and Eight Million Stories is working towards in providing disconnected youth - many of whom are young men of color - with an opportunity to complete their education and obtain meaningful employment opportunities. We will learn what Marvin views as measuring success in providing support to these young people who may not of received similar support in traditional settings.

Conversations will be available on Emanu El's streaming video page (select Proler Chapel) and Facebook.
