Speaker Bio: Just Understanding My Priorities (J.U.M.P.) was founded by Adrian Richardson, a graphic designer, web developer, entrepreneur, and native Washingtonian. While observing the challenges that young men in this area face while transitioning into manhood and combining his professional talents, Adrian created J.U.M.P. as a weekly dual functioning program featuring graphic design, media production, and life skills development and training. This passion soon expanded to working with females and the families of the participants in the program.
The graphic design and entrepreneur training is designed to teach an employable skill set that will assist participants in becoming graphic designers, print or electronic media communication specialists, and entrepreneurs in a setting that fits their strengths. Equally as important, if not more critical, is the life skills discipline which assists young men and women in developing their personal autonomy and self-esteem, relationship building, critical thinking, money management, nutrition, hygiene and health management, and conflict resolution. Sessions are also offered on interview and resume preparedness.
Registration is free but you must RSVP to gain access to the building.
