Thanks to a grant from the Baltimore Children and Youth Fund, Port Discovery is now launching a youth leadership program called the Next Generation Youth Advisory Council, designed to build off of the success of the first YAC.
With help from the Y of Central Maryland, participants are being enrolled from neighborhoods in Baltimore City that have been historically underserved. The group of up to thirty children will meet one Saturday a month, participating in workshops and activities ranging from universal design to cultural diversity to public speaking, as well as a community service project. Each meeting will conclude with lunch, and time to play in the Museum.
“Through this work, we want to empower Baltimore City youth with the skills and confidence needed to play active roles in their communities and the world,” describes Port Discovery’s President & CEO, Bryn Parchman. To that end, several YAC alumni have already volunteered to participate in the Next Generation YAC meetings to help foster participation among new members.
If you are interested in becoming involved with the Next Generation of Youth Advisory Council, please email email@example.com. Act now – and don’t miss this special – and limited opportunity for Baltimore City children to learn about and practice civic engagement while having fun!
