What are some of the sessions?
All sessions are 1 hour long. Teens, experts, and activists in SWPA are presenting on topics like "Real Talk on Bullying," "Race and Responsibility," "Filmmaking," "Audio storytelling," "Stereotypes and -ISMs," and sessions on radio, hip-hop, and writing are in the works.
What's a resource fair?
When teens ask us things like, "How do I take the bus without getting lost?" or "How can I find a job?" adults don't always have the answers. This fair is designed to tap volunteer experts to give free, no-strings-attached tips on survival skills that young adults need.
How much is this thing?
I live far away and don't know how to get there. Can you help?
Probably! Email email@example.com with details!
