MINDS EMPOWERED (M.E.)
Minds Empowered aims to create a safe space for women-identified, male-identified & gender non-conforming youth. Through a combination of art-making and group, discussion participants are given a platform to express themselves freely and become change-makers in their communities. This Winter THE POINT CDC is offering 12 stipends M.E. Apprenticeship opportunities. These apprentices will work on a special project focusing on issues of Domestic Violence and how to translate this awareness into community organizing and advocacy. We will work to identify various forms of violence and the effect it has on our personal identities as well as our environment and relationships. Through the use of mixed media, photography, poetry, art-journaling, culinary arts, group outings and on-site visits we will gain insight into the topic. Each M.E. Apprentice will contribute and assist in producing a final project to share experiences and knowledge gained.
As an important step to preparing job readiness and improving access to higher education, THE POINT provides internship opportunities for teens. Students can intern in all areas of THE POINT's programs including:
