This program was created by Black folks, for Black folks in order to facilitate community and connection. This is a creative, healing, and intergenerational space to be your authentic self with other Black girls and gender expansive youth. Expect to attend 1-2 meetings per month in either your one-on-one mentorship pairing or with the larger BGM group. This program runs from October 2022 to May 2023.
First Friday of every month, October-June (with the exception of October which will be on the second Friday), time TBD.
Location: The Y-WE Building (5623 Rainier Ave S, Seattle, WA 98118)
In addition: One meeting per month with your one-on-one mentor. Location TBD.
Facilitated by Aisha Al-Amin.
