Here on the left is a photo of the YAC at the mental health carnival volunteering and representing UrbanZone. They played games with the kids that came up to the table and explain to other what our program is about and how they could get themselves or a friend/ family member signed up for the program and they also explained how they could become apart of the YAC. On the right shows our Youth Advisory coordinator Scott Martin feeding the homeless at MLK park a community service activity that the YAC put on.
The UrbanZone also puts on an open mic for teen or adults once a month. This is a place where people can express their self through spoken word, poetry, rap, song, ect without any judgement. This is all organized and ran by the YAC (youth advisory council) here at UrbanZone. If you have any questions or want to be apart of the open mic please fill free to contact us.
