YOUTH ORGANIZING GROUP (YOG)
YOG is a dedicated space to engage Youth Leaders on the ground in Malden’s community through a lens of educational justice and equity. Issues such as school days off for Asian holidays, ethnic studies curriculum, and local youth civic engagement could be potentially addressed depending on the interest of GMAACC Youth Leaders. Youth Leaders will be given the tools and resources needed for student-led campaigns to achieve a more equitable/culturally inclusive school environment at Malden Public Schools.
YOUTH PROJECT ON ASIAN WELLBEING (YPAW)
YPAW is a dedicated space for Asian/Asian American-identifying students to explore mental health and well-being. We will reflect on our own experiences and learn how to educate ourselves and other Asian/Asian American students on ways to initiate conversations on mental and emotional wellbeing within their social circles and promote healthy coping mechanisms. This year, YPAW’s focus will be to facilitate a series of discussion circles that serve as safer and brave spaces for Malden’s Asian/Asian American youth to discuss mental and emotional wellness with each other.
