Youth Leadership Board
It’s that time again!
We are kicking off our 2023-2024 Youth Leadership Board programming. These young people have receive an opportunity to share their stories as it relates to healing justice, self-development, and life skills. This program gives our youth a chance to step out of their comfort zone while receiving knowledge from other youth and adults.
Quarantine & Heal - Youth Edition
In the Spring of 2020, Fanm Saj invited its partners, Collective Sistahood, Melanated Essentials, Cherades Youth Theater Project, Pillow Talks of South Florida and Spiritual Essences, GEM Culture and Powerhouse Holistic Health Education Organization to develop an innovative interactive virtual program to support youth with distressing and addressing their individual concerns during this collective trauma experience.
Quarantine & Heal is a 4-week virtual program that teaches a diverse range of Black youth, ages 13-24 and from different backgrounds and cultures, about Social Justice and offers interactive holistic wellness activities that offer healing justice to our youth. Over 100 youth have been impacted by this programming youth leadership programing since the Spring of 2020.
Spring 2021 and 2022 Cohorts are now complete. We were able to expand our network of partners and volunteers with Collective Sistahood, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, The Golden Black Sheep, Fondasyon Zaka, Amelia's Garden, Spiritual Essences, Cherades Youth Theater Project, Yoga with Amanda Bazil, and Cultural Historian Dr. Gilles.
Our 2023 - 2024 cohort is on it's way!
