SHOW: Making It To The Finish Line

TIME: 1st and 4th Tuesday Monthly 7-8 p.m. EST.

HOST: Join Host Gladys Pearson, Founder/CEO of Making It To The Finish Line, and Co-Host Chef Sand, Big Will’s Smokehouse for a wonderful motivational, informative and inspirational show on youth.

MORE:  The mission of Making It To The Finish Line is to mentor youth ages 7-17  by empowering them through training, motivation, encouragement, and support to reach their highest potential.  We achieve this by providing age and developmentally appropriate programs, activities and opportunities for youth in the metro Detroit area.

MITTFL group and individual mentoring is achieved through the Young and Elegant/Young and Debonair Program Boot Camp.  The program is open to all youth ages 7-17.  The program runs throughout the school year and offers opportunities for youth to explore current interests and have novel experiences enhancing confidence and character building because character speaks volumes about a person. The program culminates with a Cotillion Ball.

Making It To The Finish Line, “Boot Camp sessions runs from September to May of each year. We meet every Sunday from 5 pm to 7 pm. In May we celebrate with the Cotillion Ball. The Young & Elegant/Young & Debonair Boot Camp is designed to bridge the gap between parents and youth which is so important today. We cannot emphasize this enough because it is so badly needed! I ask, can you put a price on this?

Workshops that are offered just to name a few: College Readiness/College tours, Etiquette 101, Character building,  200 mandatory volunteer hours-high school
students,  How important grades are, Ballroom dancing, Financial Literacy, Public speaking
