This year, their advertising budget has increased and more people than ever will be aware of Second Sunday on Main.

If you sell art, books, jewelry, food products, or home accessories, this might be an excellent opportunity to for you to present your products to a wide audience.

They are pleased to announce a trial membership for first time vendors. New vendors can try SSOM free for their first Sunday during the season and pay no fee for that particular Sunday. This is a great introductory opportunity to experience our community.

Education : The UBS Scholars Program at the Freedom Center
Posted by admin on 2007/4/12 12:00:00 (2002 reads)

The UBS Scholars program is an initiative of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, collaborating with SmartMoney Community Services, Joy Outdoor Education Center, Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, and University of Cincinnati. This collaborative and community-based initiative is designed to enhance pathways for increasing youth leadership and economic empowerment for 100 Cincinnati high school students (current 8th-11th graders), while reinforcing civic responsibility and volunteer efforts for the Greater Cincinnati youth in underserved communities. 

Freedom Center is looking for 100 potential future leaders to participate in a yearlong leadership and mentoring program. Each student in the program will be assigned a mentor. This mentor will help them with college choices and financial decisions. Participants will meet monthly (1st Tuesday) with their mentors at the Freedom Center. We are seeking youth who can be potential leaders, those who are in the middle of the margins. Those who get lost in the "shuffle". This program would be beneficial to those students that need a little guidance and push to become productive citizens. We are seeking participants from low income families. The program GPA requirement is 2.0. GPA is not the deciding factor-potential of the student will be the deciding factor. Participants will realize substantive achievement and personal growth in the eight strategic areas listed below:

Events : Mariel @ Freedom Center
Posted by admin on 2007/4/4 14:50:00 (1483 reads)


The Cast 


On  Saturday, March 31, 2007 the Underground Railroad Freedom Center hosted a world premiere of "Mariel"

On the historic Mariel boatlift from Cuba in 1980, when Fidel Castro allowed 125,000 people to leave the country, two teenagers — Iatalina, an intelligent girl, and Jorge, a boy looking for a second chance — meet as strangers and form a fast friendship as they dream of a bright future in America. But once they arrive in Florida, both must accept not only what they’ve left behind, but also find a way to form their own identities independent of others’ expectations. An exciting world premiere, Mariel explores a little-known story in the history of immigration, dives into the riches of Cuban and Afro-Cuban culture and pulsates with the island’s vibrant musical forms, from mambo and bolero to rumba and rock. The production features music by Grammy-nominated composer John Forster and a book by internationally acclaimed storyteller and writer David Gonzalez, and the A.G. and Margaret Lafley Touring Company.
