FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PINE BLUFF, Ark. – The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff will host its annual Youth Motivation Task Force (YMTF) program February 23-25. With the theme, From the Classroom to the Boardroom…Students in Transition, YMTF has become one of the most significant and exhilarating programs provided for UAPB students. The goal of the program is to encourage students to take full advantage of the benefits available, give guidance on how to succeed in their careers, and look at life in the real world of work through the experiences of seasoned professionals.
With more than 25 employer participants (partners) registered, they contribute to YMTF each year by providing financial support, serving on panels, conducting workshops, visiting classes or just chatting with students one-on-one about workplace expectations. Student liaisons also have a very crucial role to play with the consultant and team they support. Many still enjoy mentoring relationships with their consultants from previous years.
The YMTF Assembly will feature Kirk Franklin, award-winning gospel artist as the speaker Tuesday, February 25 at 11:00 am in H.O. Clemmons arena of the Kenneth L. Johnson, Sr. Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPER) Complex. The event is free and open to the public.
Kirk Franklin is a multi- platinum selling artist whose fusion of gospel and contemporary music has inspired audiences across generations. As a mirror of Christian humanity, he boldly reflects what one faith-walking man can accomplish when he focuses on God and taps deep into the gifts he has been given.
