10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. The Community Development Team will partner with the CFSA to
improve linkages between community groups and leadership in Mobile County, which
will ultimately close the opportunity gap for needs and services to address poverty and
youth issues. To achieve this, the team will work with the CFSA to refine outreach
methodologies for its “Charting the Course” campaign and also develop an “asset
map” of nonprofits and community groups to continue populating their SHARE
networking tool.

collection and will be opening new drop-off sites this summer. The Leadership Mobile
Environment Team will work with the City of Mobile, Mobile County, and other

public needs and host a Single Stream Saturday event to highlight the new drop-off
sites to update residents on the recent changes in the City’s recycling program.

3:45 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. All experts agree – learning begins at birth. By the time children turn
three, the foundation for lifelong learning success or failure has already begun.
Because there are few free education resources for parents of newborns to age three,
the Leadership Mobile Education Team, with the assistance of early childhood experts,
will create an education-based activities tool to assist parents during these critical
learning years.
