The Juvenile Justice Project has had an exciting summer! All season long, weve been working with young people across Memphis to facilitate Know Your Rights Theatre Workshops with over 800 youth at Liberty’s Mass Church, the Boys & Girls Club of Hickory Hill, Girls Inc, and Summer Camp programs at almost every community center in the city! We managed to reach so many folks this summer with the help of our college and high school interns who have officially finished up their summer with us this week.
As we close out a busy summer we are looking to the fall! We plan to visit classrooms, youth groups, clubs, and more to teach people how to safely navigate experiences with law enforcement. Our curriculum is flexible enough to be taught to people of all ages, although having similarly aged participant groups is very helpful. Let us know if you want us to come to your organization to perform this FREE workshop.
JJP Youth Council Wants YOU!
We are also looking to continue the great work of our youth council. Our summer youth council participants have been working hard designing events for other teens. They have been planning financial literacy workshops, food drives for the homeless, and more. Some of our council members are headed off to college this fall and we are looking to fill their spots. We are seeking motivated high school students who want to make a better Memphis for their peers.Participation may count toward internship or for service hour credits.
If you are interested in booking Know Your Rights workshops or in joining the youth council contact Faith Pollan at email@example.com or at the office at 901-725-4990.
