Youth Empowerment Program
Youth Empowerment Program- After School
This program provides elementary school boys and girls an alternative to their hectic day by providing a safe place after school where they find peace and love in a supportive nurturing environment that helps them discover their hidden talents, build skills and identify their multiple intelligences. Students begin their afternoon by taking part in a welcoming non-traditional opening circle where the breath is king; peace rules the day and self-love is unabashedly celebrated. From taking part in impromptu skits, playing African drums, learning life skills or building physical stamina there is never a dull moment when kids gain access to their unique and special gifts to share with the world.
Youth Empowerment Program- Summer Camp (YES!)
YES! Camp provides a unique gender specific safe space where girls are able to dream, explore, reflect and find their own voice to express the person they are becoming. For girls, as they approach adolescence, they face all kinds of challenges from society: pressure to be perfect, expectations about beauty, beliefs about food and eating, and more. These themes are explored through the arts, drama, dance, arts & crafts, yoga, cultural music, fitness, literacy and etiquette.
