Activities & Trainings:
This month the Fellows are traveling for the first time to their monthly meeting! Thank you to Girls Inc of Lynn for hosting us.
Health Resources in Action’s Yoojin Lee trained the group on best practices in youth empowerment. HRIA has worked with Fellows on this topic for many years in the past. Fellows participated in activities that were pulled from HRIA’s Youth Worker Certificate Training.
Erin Doherty Andrews, a current MPF supervisor at mathPOWER and Class X Alumni, shared her knowledge around curriculum development. Her How to be Awesome (at Curriculum Design) workshop proved very helpful to Fellows starting to shape their programs.
Fellows Aminata and Ingrid are both serving at Girls Inc. this year. They gave the group some historical context about their organization’s mission and goals.
Senior Fellow, Will, led Culture Sharing and My Most Important Word activities that brought the Fellows closer together. Frankie and Dontae rounded out the meeting dropping bars in a Making Rhymes skill share!
