EDUCATORS ARE INNOVATORS
Attention All Latchkey Kids
If you are at home without supervision for some part of the day, especially after school until a parent returns home. I have created a simple solution for this complex problem, by creating a third place outside of school and home for youth to have full access to resources made available to them as a member of the Youth Bar.
The purpose of the Youth Bar is to: advance financial independence, eliminate stereotypes about rappers, and provide a safe place with supportive staff members for the youth. This purpose allows youth to have a third place outside of school and home (Oakland’s Safe haven).
The Youth Bar exists to provide scholars the opportunity to socialize in a space that offers things like:
Access to various games
Access to healthy food and drinks
A Safe Place to gain a peace of mind before & after school
Supportive staff/mentors in various positions to guide the youth down a path to success
Studio space for young scholars to artistically express themselves
A counselor for those that need to directly express their issues to someone
Students will have access to many opportunities such as; the opportunity to travel outside the country and gain a wider perspective of the world outside of Oakland. Travel opportunities will come from the Youth Bar’s Partner Program: Young Black & Everywhere whose mission is to give black youth an opportunity to travel overseas.
Financial Education, mental health awareness, proper nutrition training and many more
