York Correctional Institution (CT) Business Coaching Day

Defy Tri-State is gearing up for our next event at York Correctional Institution! Join us for this cohort’s SPECIAL Business Coaching Day on April 22nd, signifying the midway point of the program for the women. If you attended their Kick Off in December, please consider continuing your support of this cohort by joining us again in April.

Other than this being a milestone event for the women in York, why is this event so special? We’re also celebrating our Tri-State Board Chair’s 50th BIRTHDAY!! Many of you have met and had the pleasure of working with Marcus Glover over the past year as he pushed hard to keep Defy’s Tri-State chapter moving forward. Join us as we celebrate his work, friendship, and dedication to Defy!!
