The second annual Carolyn Young Mentor Walk will be held Saturday at Agnes Scott College.
The walk encourages students to envision life beyond high school – one in college, technical college, or with other opportunities. College students and adults are encouraged to engage younger students in conversation about their futures and why school can be cool while walking. Agnes Scott students are actually trained as mentors for the day using suggested strategies and topics – and some they have come up with themselves. For many school children, it is their first time on a college campus.
The 1.5 mile walk goes around the Agnes Scott campus, by the Oakhurst Community Garden, the college observatory and around streets of Decatur. The walk is open to anybody. The actual walk begins at 9:15 a.m.
U.S. Rep. John Lewis will give an address. Guests will include U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, state House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams and FOX 5′s Amanda Davis.
