STATEN ISLAND HISTORY
Would you like to know about "The Isle of Staaten" from 12,000 years ago to the present day? This is a group discussion course (not like a regular 101 History course) that will take everyone back to the Great Mastodon Era as the first indigenous people made their way to our great Island. The class will be guided through time by referring to the book, Holden's Staten Island: The History of Richmond County, which was edited and compiled by the late Richard Dickenson, SI Borough Historian. A guest speaker will be Ed Platt, who is the President of the NY Institute of Anthropology. He will provide the class with an archeological and anthropological cultural impact study from the earliest records to the present. Also speaking will be Lenape Marge and Cherokee-Mayan-Tiano Robert Boldeagle who will talk about their Staten Island tribal ancestors, where they first originated, and what their occupational life was like here and in the New York City region. Other topics will be Staten Island landmarks and the mining quarries that made an industrial impact here in our area. This class is geared to people who have a genuine interest in the Island's history and its present course.

JOHN BOSCO’S PRELAW SCHOOL
John Bosco, Esq.
Ralph Waldo Emerson preached self-reliance. Yet, when it comes to understanding the laws that govern us, we are not very self-reliant. We have developed a dependency upon legal professionals to tell us what our laws mean. In a democracy, an understanding of our laws ought to be within our grasp not beyond it.
Patriots know the importance of legal literacy.
Legal literacy is not as difficult to attain as one might think. In less than three hours, you can achieve legal literacy. Let John Bosco show you how to scrape away the particular words of our laws to reveal the common framework that are hidden underneath. Familiarity with the common framework is the key to
unlocking the meaning of our laws. John Bosco is the Director of the Legal

The Institute, which has been endorsed by the Borough President, the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce and the Staten Island Economic Development Corporation, contributes to the development of
tomorrow's community leaders and creates an effective network to connect them.

and Federal offices, and institutions of international governance. Class members will meet with community, city, and state leaders. They will develop an in-depth understanding of how decisions on Staten Island are made and how they can have an impact on those decisions. They will eventually become an integral part
of a vital network of experts that will influence decisions on Staten Island's future growth. Tuition per student is $1,000/year ($500 for Staten Island Chamber of Commerce Members). A limited number of sponsorships is available for candidates from community organizations and not-for-profits.
