Youth Leadership Program
This year BMAGIC in collaboration with community youth organizations, will coordinate and facilitate a Youth Lead Leadership Program culminating in a showcase and public presentation for youth in our Bayview and Southeast communities. Partners include 3rd St. Youth Center & Clinic, Community Youth Center- Bayview Advocates (CYC-BYA), BAYCAT, Project Zeeni and The Bayview Opera House. Youth participate in team based learning, leadership development modules and team building from October to May. Youth seek to inform their peers on ways to navigate such serious and powerful obstacles and barriers within their community. This year’s event will be an artistic and graphic presentation with activities and prizes for all the youth attending.
