HYP October Meeting
Tuesday, October 22, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM (CDT)
Please join us for this month's HYP meeting:
What A Girl Wants
Documentary Screening and Discussion
Free CEUs (1.5) provided!
During the spring of 2000, eleven girls aged 8 to 16 from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds and two classrooms of middle and high school students were interviewed about their views on media culture and its impact on their lives. Their insightful and provocative responses provide the central theme of the film, a half-hour examination of how the media presents girls. Juxtaposing footage culled from a typical week of TV broadcasting with original interviews, What a Girl Wants will provoke debate and, ideally, act as a catlyst for change in media content. (documentary description pulled from www.mediaed.org)
Please feel free to invite your coworkers and anyone else you feel would be interested in joining the Healthy Youth Partnership. If you have additional questions, please contact Jeni Brazeal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When & Where
Healthy Youth Partnership
The Healthy Youth Partnership is a volunteer-led collaboration working to support youth-serving professionals in the Central Texas community. HYP's collaboration originated from professionals working in adolescent sexual health, however it has expanded to include all youth-serving professionals. HYP's goal is to connect all youth-serving professionals with the skills, resources, and networks to further their work in our community. HYP offers free professional development opportunities that include monthly workshops, an annual conference, and a Leadership Development Academy. HYP serves as a model of collaboration, offering opportunities to network, combine resources, and get involved in community-led efforts, including a community-wide teen pregnancy prevention needs assessment. Through our workshops and communications, HYP connects youth-serving professionals with the latest research and best practices around working with youth.
