Below is a sampling of some of the workshops that are geared toward youth in their late teens to early 20s. We tailor our offerings to match each of our partner's needs and requests.
Career Development Workshops
At the career development workshops, the students will learn about different career paths and have access to computers to research and apply to internships and jobs.
Healthcare Literacy and Education Workshops
In the healthcare workshops, the students will learn about nutrition, healthy living and "healthy" life style choices. Multimedia, including films and the internet will also be utilized to educate and inform the students.
Legal Rights Workshops
Students in the legal rights workshops will learn about legal rights of adolescents, proper interactions with law enforcement, and their rights in the community. Role playing, multimedia, film, television, and computers will be utilized to foster critical thinking and awareness.
Literacy is defined by UNESCO as "the ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate, compute and use printed and written materials associated with varying contexts. Literacy involves a continuum of learning to enable an individual to achieve his or her goals, to develop his or her knowledge and potential, and to participate fully in the wider society." A wide array of literacy programs ranging from health literacy, art literacy to mental health literacy, all focused on broadening the horizons of the students served are offered. Our organization, with the help of funding, will create a robust, unique library that incorporates artwork, books, film, and other multimedia to fully incorporate the arts, education, film and books into the literacy educational process.
