Youth Summit

youth summit

Hello friends!!  It’s been quite a while, just wanted to give you an update on some more workshops we’ve done, including the San Fernando Youth Summit!!

The San Fernando Valley Partnership’s mission is to empower local youth to identify key issues in their community and figure out ways to imple- ment strategies that work in dealing with them. The summit held approximately 300 people– mostly high school students from all over the San Fernando/San Gabriel Valley.

Our workshop focused on expression via spoken word and song- finding empowerment through the sharing of your voice, the enlightenment of others’ voices, and the next step between them to collaborate for a better future. The goal is to give the youth tools to trust themselves and their spirits, and put their ideas into actions.

The day was a huge success with poems shared by new poets, and the youth’s spirits ignited!
