VOICES at YWCA
Youth Leadership Development for Ages 12-15
What is VOICES?
VOICES (Valuing Our Insights for Civic Engagement) is a 6-week youth development program for ages 12–15. Offered through the Department of Public Health, the VOICES curriculum specifically offers participants the opportunity to explore their identities, their communities and their ability to make change as leaders.
VOICES consists of 6 workshops, which are divided into three sets. The first set focuses on the exploration of identity. The second set deals with who participants are in relation to other people, and the third asks participants to think of themselves within their community.
Workshops will take place once a week for 6 weeks at the YWCA Central Massachusetts. Each workshop is 2 1/2 hours long.
