On Sunday afternoon, five B-PEACE Teen Community Organizers joined the youth groups of St. Paul’s Natick for an evening of relationship building, crafts,and pizza. The connection between the two teen groups was initiated in October when youth from St. Paul came to the South End for a workshop on building youth leadership. The workshop left the youth curious to know more about each other!
At St. Paul’s, the youth worked in groups to make collages. The groups discussed values they shared and selected a theme for their collage. Then, the groups came together to combine their pieces into two larger collages, one for the B-PEACE Organizers to take home and display and one for St. Paul’s to display.
During dinner, the organizers from B-PEACE invited the youth from Natick to join them in January for the 6th Annual Martin Luther King Day of Action. In addition to working on service projects, the Teen Community Organizers will be hosting a workshop focused on the importance of youth jobs and the upcoming Youth Jobs Rally in February!
