Reps from various social service agencies come in and engage the youth in discussion around the issues but also let us know about what services are available in the community. Youth are encouraged to get involved in the discussions but are welcome to listen only.
The youth who have been through trainings are out in the community from June through September handing out harm reduction supplies, resource and referral information connecting with youth in their community.
From October to December we begin meeting again and these trainings are a little more informal, and open to what youth want to do. Sometimes we have doc/talk nights where we watch a documentary and have a discussion. We have done resume building/ interview skills, yoga, improv, starting a social movement, self-defense.
