How do we stay connected to ourselves, each other, and nature during uncertain times? What wisdom is nature trying to share with us at this moment? What can nature teach us about building strong, resilient communities? Join the Nature Connections Main Cohort to explore these questions through art, journaling, and deep conversations!
What is technology doing for us? Who is behind the technology being created? What does it mean to be a creator of technology? These are the questions that the youth and mentors in Y-WE Code have been exploring together all year. Join us to hear about replacing the RAM in the Young Women Empowered laptops, creating our own websites, and getting mad about how racist and sexist artificial intelligence and machine learning can be and why. We’re excited to share the road map we’ve made over the course of the year and the way the pandemic has changed the way we gather and use technology. Please join us!
The Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is a group of returning youth committed to deepening their leadership and becoming stewards of Y-WE culture, by contributing their ideas on the direction of the organization and applying their leadership in the greater community. They have spent their year working on leadership projects, gaining skills in facilitation, public speaking, self-defense, and creating healthy boundaries. Join the YLC for a share back, skillshare and juicy conversation about radical self-love with Sonya Renee Taylor, the author of “The Body is Not an Apology.”
What is environmental racism, what is unjust about our food system, and how can we manifest visions of justice and reciprocity with both the environment and our community? Join the Environmental Leadership Council as we share our learning and experience around these questions and invite you to connect to them through reflection, art, and at-home gardening! Email Neli at email@example.com by May 20th to receive gardening supplies as available.
