Event description

Description

Join us for KIAMSHA's ANNUAL YOUTH CONFERENCE, on APRIL 6, 2019 9:30AM - 5:00PM

Kiamsha, Swahlili for "that which awakens me“, is a youth empowerment organization that uses history and character development training to turn MENTEES into MENTORS. Youth in grades 8th-12th are encouraged to develop workshops for their peers that speak to the issues of today from a youth perspective in an effort to promote abstinence from the ills of society.

This All-Day youth lead conference will discuss Race Relations, Social Media and Teen Stress. Take a look at the workshop descriptions below. In addition, they will enjoy lunch on a college campus, snacks and have the opportunity to win CASH prizes.

Black Excellence

Follow a walk through history that shows teens the relationship between past and present. As we understand the impact of colorism, discrimination and entitlement, we provide the tools to become modern day abolitionists; a voice for today's generation. We shine a lot on the ways teens are winning in school, home, and character.

#KnowMe

Each day, there's new drama surrounding what someone did or said on social media. It is often the first place to find out what's going on in the world and in your local area. This workshop will explore the positive and negative effects of social media and will provide tools to get the best use out of your social handles.

Living my Best Life

There is so much pressure on teens to be the best in all areas of their life. This workshop teaches teens the tools to help cope with stress, anxiety and peer pressure. How can you learn to balance and Live Your Best Life?
