Alliance for a Healthier Generation

Alliance for a Healthier Generation | Community Connections: Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"The Alliance was founded by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation as a response to the growing rate of childhood obesity. And just like our founders, our goal as an organization has always been to create systemic change, change that is not isolated to one home, or community, to one school, industry, or state. We want to create healthy changes that build upon one another and create a system, a nation, that makes the healthy choice the easy choice.

First, we set our sights on schools. It’s where kids spend most of their time outside the home so it seemed like a good place to start. We created our Healthy Schools Program in 2006 and launched in 231 schools in 13 states. The Healthy Schools Program has since grown to become the nation’s most extensive effort to prevent childhood obesity in schools now including more than 20,000 schools in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico."

Silicon Valley African Film Festival // September 29th - October 1st, 2017 Historic Hoover Theatre, San Jose // www.svaff.org | Community Connections: Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"The Silicon Valley African Film Festival (SVAFF) promotes an understanding and appreciation of Africa and Africans through moving images. Aptly themed “Africa through the African lens”, it is the only film festival in California that is exclusively focused on films made by African filmmakers and, crucially, provides audiences with exquisite lenses to the real Africa. The festival recognizes and celebrates the creation and discovery of cinematic art and innovation, and provides the San Francisco Bay Area community access to the richness, diversity and vitality of Africa’s creative expressions through the lenses of Africa’s seasoned and emerging filmmakers. SVAFF has built a substantial following and has become an annual destination film event that draws out of state and international guests."

More details will follow about the specific times of workshops and speakers. The event is completely free but registration is required to account for limited capacity. 
 

Presented by the IDA Arts and Education Project

The Arts and Education Project ("AEP") of the Institute for Diversity in the Arts at Stanford University began in 2014 for the purpose of documenting, analyzing, and disseminating best practices regarding the use of hip hop in education. The project also focuses on the impacts and "halo" effects of these pedagogies on current and former diverse low-income high school students in the East Palo Alto community.

 

More info about the Symposium:

The 5th Element Global Symposium on Hip Hop Pedagogy is the culminating event of IDA’s Arts and Education Project. IDA's project partners are the Mural Music and Arts Project and the East Palo Alto Academy. It has been generously funded by the Surdna Foundation.

 

This convening is designed for hip hop educators, community arts advocates, teaching artists, and those interested in the liberatory possibilities of hip hop pedagogies. It will feature:

  • A keynote by South African hip hop pioneer and educator Emile YX (Heal the Hood Project/Black Noise)

  • A panel featuring H. Samy Alim, Casey Wong, the Mural Music and Arts Project, and East Palo Alto Academy High School

  • A panel on hip hop feminist pedagogies featuring Joan Morgan

Workshop sessions led by leading hip hop educators will also allow participants to share experiences and learnings and make critical connections.

 

More Info about the Think Tank:

On November 9th, participants will get the opportunity to connect and build with hip hop educators, scholars, and community-based organizations as a part of the Hip Hop Education Think Tank IV, "It's Yours! Sustaining and Reimagining Our Movement." It has been generously funded by the Surdna Foundation.

 

The fourth edition of the Hip Hop Education Think Tank is presented by the Hip Hop Education Center in collaboration with Stanford University's Institute for Diversity in the Arts. Previous partners include, New York University's Metropolitan Center on Equity and the Transformation of Schools, Columbia's Institute for Urban and Minority Education, and the NY Public Library's Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture."

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health | Community Connections: Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"Seeking to prevent the early onset of mental illness in the youth population of Santa Clara County through early education and awareness, consistent treatment and community involvement, the Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope (REACH) Program launched its services in an effort to help address this growing mental health issue.

 

The program, based on the early detection models from the Portland Identification and Early Referral (PIER) Training Institute in Portland, Maine, is a collaboration of efforts between Momentum for Mental Health and Starlight Community Services.  The core mission of REACH is to help detect early warning signs of psychosis that may pose a threat to young adults, and to provide effective support and treatment.  Though often subtle, early symptoms of psychosis can be disabling and affect young people’s ability to complete schoolwork, interact socially, and accomplish daily tasks."...
