Amrak is a local advocacy organization founded over three years ago that works to empower youth in Central Florida that have been affected by bullying. Now, this great Orlando non-profit will launch an anti-bullying after-school program with a kick-off event at the organization's new hub, the Winter Park Community Center. The launch event will take place on January 9th from 4 PM to 6 PM.
The Amrak after-school program in Winter Park plans to offer a safe place for kids to do their homework, talk to a counselor, and learn about the importance of self. The kids will be offered opportunities to participate in activities that work to boost self-esteem. The esteem boosting activities include singing, dancing, and acting.
New After-School Program In Winter Park Caters To Kids In Crisis
The launch event will feature a talk by Amrak creator Sean Roberts where he will discuss the Amrak mission and his intentions for the after-school project. Roberts will also unveil new superheroes created specifically for this cause and there will be a performance by the Christian rapper Markevelli and Yahia. The song is called "No Time to Waste." During the course of the event, Roberts will also review the features on the Amrak app and the mentorship program where students can pick a mentor to talk to if they need personal help.
The launch event will allow the public an opportunity to check out Amrak's new hub, the Winter Park Community Center. Roberts is excited to have a headquarters for his organization as he believes this new space will help to make kids feel safe and enable them to do things that help them feel like they matter.
The afterschool program will take place from 3 PM to 6 PM at the Winter Park Community Center at 721 W. New England Ave. To learn more about Sean Roberts and the Amrak story check out our Orlando Local Creates Amrak Anti-Bullying Campaign article.
