BeTheChange@NorthShore Preteen Conference April 25th

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

On Saturday April 25th, Urban Ink had the privilege to be invited by the North Shore Multicultural Society to facilitate a hip hop workshop led by J-Kay Agudo. The conference, held at Gleneagles Community Centre in gorgeous West Vancouver, was aiming to get youth to understand children’s rights. With their three amazing mottos, #Bseen, #Bheard and #Binspired, youth were able to connect with preteens across the North Shore for a fun and exciting day that enabled them to stand up for ideas and actions that would make the North Shore a better place. This conference was a fantastic opportunity for youth to take on a leadership role and create positive change in their communities.

J-Kay led a hip hop workshop to four groups of 25 youth. She taught each group a hip hop combo that the entire group of 100 youth performed together at the end of the conference to celebrate diversity and inclusion. The event was an extremely positive experience for both the youth and the facilitators, and we could not have been happier to be a part of such an impactful event in the community.
