Rating: 4.5 stars   10 reviews

Issues:

Location: Kansas City KS 66102 USA

Mission: Our mission is to utilize the arts to cultivate and develop self-empowerment, community service, higher education, and self-expression within adolescents aged 11-18.
Results: In September 2009, we piloted an after school program in Kansas City, Kansas. With school support and volunteers we were able to build a great curriculum, bring in guest speakers, and transport students to various cultural events throughout the city. We've watch youth grow in their talents and become self motivated leaders among their peers. We've also worked hard to create partnerships and collaborations that will lead to making a impact with youth in the community. Collaborations with the YMCA and Poetry groups such as Om1 has led us to new heights.

In a school district where the Arts are dwindling and Creativity is frowned upon Youth City Network is filling a void in young people’s minds’ and hearts’. Youth City Network has been able to give young people a creative outlet. Youth City Network gave young people a voice and it was through that voice that those young people became empowered. Over the course of the school year it was wonderful to see young people become invested in themselves, their thoughts and the output of their thoughts. It was also wonderful to see the youth in Youth City Network become a family; they were able to create a bond with each other that will hopefully keep each other safe through high school and college career. The lessons they learned on how to use their voices and word will give them an added advantage in life.

Youth City Network has been creating events for my students to be able to express their spoken word and songs for 3 years. Recently, I been able to take students to the 3rd Thursday Open Mic events, and my students love it. hopefully, more students will be able to come out and experience this great opportunity.
