Youth 4 Change

April 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

SPECIAL EVENT: FREE to Youth
Fabio Arnaldo Ayala to perform at Youth 4 Change and lead workshop with Jordan Ferrick.

Join us this Monday for an exciting opportunity to hear from one of our very own community members Fabio Arnaldo Ayala perform live a few singles from his up and coming new album. Than stay for dinner with Fabio and Colleague Jordan Ferrick as they lead us into a discussion/workshop around the power of self-expression and social identity through the arts.

Sneak peak at his single here:

Agenda for the Night
-Open with a few live performances from Fabio’s up and coming album
-Lead into a discussion around the power of self-expression and social identity through the arts
-Facilitate a training on how to create a social identity wheel.
This session will assist youth in exploring aspects of themselves, in conjunction with their peers, as a way of connecting across difference and building community among similarities. This activity is great for teaching and holding discussions around Intersectionality, Multi-partiality, empathy, and self-compassion.
– Facilitate an Open Mic Session with Youth.
– Closing Circle Process

Youth 4 Change is for local-area youth 12-22 interested in political organizing around local/state/national social justice issues that are important to them. Brattleboro area advocates and educators are holding a space and assisting youth in building a strong personal toolkit to organize for change. Using a variety of creative methods, we aim to enable youth with tools for resilience, courage, and compassion, while fostering their ability to speak up about issues that matter to them and to take action in the name of love and liberation for all people. Come to explore issues of racial, economic and gender justice through art, movement, first-hand accounts, and contemplative practices. Connect with area youth around the issues that matter to you and strengthen your toolkit for action!

Drop in homework time and art-making at 5:30. 6:00 Food and 6:30 meeting and organizing, held at the Root Social Justice Center (28 Williams St)
