YOUTH COUNCIL Receives Support to present After School Programs!
Stitchers Youth Council members Shawn Prather, She’Kinah Taylor, and Cali Flemming have applied for and received an “It Starts With Us” Youth Project Sponsorship from the St. Louis Mental Health Board and St. Louis Violence Prevention Commission for the school program called “Good For Your Health” that they are developing with peers Emeara Burns and AnnaLise Cason.
The grant will support further development and at least two school performances.
The program includes music, a skit, games and dance and covers nutrition and bullying in fun and innovative ways.
The team presented a pilot program in March for children at Laclede Elementary School in the West End. This outreach program was supported with funds from LUSH Corporation’s The Charity Pot as part of a youth leadership development program.
To nominate a school to serve as a host for this program please contact Stitchers Youth Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
