Hello friends!! Â 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 Partnershipâ€™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 othersâ€™ 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!
