Bowling for St. Jude Children’s Hospital @ Plamor Lanes
Jun 3 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

IOTAS Bowling for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a benefit to provide a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The tournament consists of approximately twenty (20) four (4) man teams who compete for a myriad of prizes and each team costs $100 per team for entry ($25 for each team member).

Iota Phi Theta Fraternity (ΙΦΘ) Incorporated is a nationally incorporated, historically African-American, collegiate fraternity whose purpose is the development and perpetuation of Scholarship, Leadership, Citizenship, Fidelity and Brotherhood among Men.[3] It was founded on September 19, 1963 at Morgan State University (then Morgan State College) in Baltimore, Maryland. At present, it consists of over 70,000 members. There are currently over 300 undergraduate and alumni chapters, as well as colonies located in 40 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, The Bahamas, Colombia, South Korea, and Japan.

The fraternity holds membership in the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), an umbrella organization comprising nine international historically African-American Greek letter sororities and fraternities, and the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). The Centaur magazine is the official publication of the Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. First published as a newsletter, the Centaur has evolved into a biannual magazine.

Since 2012, the fraternity has been supporting and raising funds for St. Jude, primarily through the annual St. Jude Run/Walk to End Childhood Cancer. Iota Teams were composed of members of the IOTA Family (Brothers, Sweethearts and our families and supporters) run/walk in unity in major cities across the nation on a single day, while raising funds throughout the year for St. Jude.

A portion of the proceeds from the IOTAS Bowling for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital benefit will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, founded in 1962, is a pediatric treatment and research facility focused on children’s catastrophic diseases. The hospital costs about $2 million a day to run and no family ever pays for their child to go to St. Jude.

Multiple Shades of Gray: Establishing & Maintaining Ethical Boundaries (BIR… @ Jefferson County Public Defender's Office
Jun 23 @ 8:30 am – 12:00 pm

Should I attend my client’s graduation?”, “Should I accept this gift from my client?”,“ How should I interact with my client on social media, or should I?” “ My Social Work Colleague is dating a minor, what should I do?” ” I’m attracted to my client, what should I do?”

Interesting topics makes interesting discussions! The NASW Code of Ethics exists to provide guidance in professional decision making & conduct, but what about the gray areas?! There are many gray areas within the social work practice. Ethical issues related to boundaries are amongst the most challenging topics within the social work profession. Establishing and maintaining boundaries is an important factor in sustaining ethical practice. Given the various roles played and the rate in which the profession is advancing, it is imperative that social workers not only establish but maintain professional and ethical boundaries. This will be an ethics workshop you won’t forget!

This fun and interactive workshop will:

  1. Identify the range of boundary issues in the Social Work Profession addressed by NASW Code of Ethics.
  2. Distinguish the difference between boundary crossings & boundary violations.
  3. Examine the gray areas in social work practice & discuss best practice strategies to help establish and maintain ethical boundaries.

This program is Approved by the National Association of Social Workers (Approval # 886738581-6826) for 3 continuing education contact hours in ethics.”

Quotes from past attendees: “The instructor is excellent & engaging.” “Great Workshop! Very Informative!”

African Heritage Vegetarian Cooking Class @ Good Health To Be Hail Holistic Wellness and Cultural Learning Center
Aug 26 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

An African Heritage Vegetarian Cooking Class

You’re invited to explore and celebrate the healthy food traditions of the African Diaspora.

Eat the foods our African ancestors ate on a delicious plant-based diet that is high in flavor and naturally low in cholesterol, saturated fat, sugars, and excess sodium.

The ancestors of African Americans brought many wonderful food traditions to parts of the Caribbean, South America, and the southern states of the U.S. Maybe these were your great, great, great grandparents. Over the generations, many of these food traditions have been lost, with the influences of modern, American eating habits, and the health of African Americans has suffered because of this loss.

Join Chef Sandra Scott as she teaches, educates and empowers you to go on a journey back to your roots, with A Taste of Africa. Enjoy African dishes such as:

Jollof Rice

African Peanut Stew

Mango and Papaya After Chop
