Happy Mother's Day!
How can we celebrate mothers and mother figures differently in 2021?
  • Most moms simply wish to connect with their children and spend time with family in any way possible—if not in person, then with a phone call or video chat!
  • If your mom is at home, give her a day off from any family chores, especially during this difficult time. Someone else can take full responsibility for making or serving the food, clearing and cleaning the dishes, and doing the laundry. 
  • A simple "I love you" and "Thank you Mom" goes a long way!

The Future Leaders Prep Course is designed for youth ages 14 to22 in PBC to learn about leadership development, financial awareness, and job preparedness.

During the last session, the youth learned about entrepreneurship, that is, how to transform their passions into a business idea.
