You are all invited and encouraged to attend a special meeting tomorrow, Thursday January 15th from 4 to 5:30 pm.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are creating a new Education Center.
If you've driven down Seattle's 5th Avenue lately, you've probably seen the shell of the Gates Foundation's future visitor center just across the street from Seattle Center's Memorial Stadium. Part of the foundation's new campus, it is scheduled for completion in 2011. Open to the general public, the center's goals are to bring awareness to the inequities that exist in our world today, to inspire people to get involved, and to give them the tools and support needed to make this happen. We believe this center presents an amazing opportunity to raise awareness, and to impact individual and organizational involvement in these issues -- locally, nationally and globally.
They'd like to hear from teens about what you'd like to see this center become.
Please come to this Focus Group Meeting and offer your opinion. It will be fun and easy. All you need to do is show up.
I'd love to offer the Gates folks a nice collection of smart and engaged young minds, so please do come, and bring along a friend or two. The more the merrier.
Below is location info.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!!!
