The Youth program is open to children between the ages of 6 and 13. The curriculum is full of fun and interactive learning opportunities that are flexible for different age groups. Activities are separated by age group (elementary school: ages 6-9; middle school: ages 10-13) and are designed to engage participants at their appropriate learning-level.
Youth participants will learn about:
- Our city and neighborhoods
- History of Overtown
- Building a home, from its foundation to finishing touches
- The impacts of climate change on housing and communities
- Advocacy 101: what they want to advocate for and ways to do it
NOTE: Participants must have a parent or guardian in the HEAL program.
