PICC’s Statewide Immigrant and Refugee Youth Convening

This is an opportunity for us to share our stories and develop leadership skills, organizing skills, and have a chance to build relationships with other youth who share our similar experience and goals

When: August 17-19, 2018
Ages: 14-25
Cost: $35.00 per person
All attendees will help with fundraising- PICC will provide and assist with a fundraising plan!

CALLING PAST ATTENDEES: Join our convening organizing team! Your role will be to help us figure out content for this event, activities, possible trainers/speakers, fundraising and help with outreach to your friends. Commitment: 5 1-hour planning calls in the evenings starting June- July.

We have great workshops and training’s lined up just for you!
  • Building together- what is community organizing? Tools and practice of leadership development and learning how to build immigrant leadership statewide.
  • Don’t be afraid, Know Your Rights- Learn about your rights with the police and ICE- better yet, learn how to educate your family and community through interactive workshops.
  • Loving yourself  means loving your Community–  attacks on immigrant communities and people of color are overwhelming and threaten our well being. We all feel it! but do we practice tools to take care of ourselves before taking care of others? Let’s find ways to keep our spirits,  body and mind healthy regardless of stressful situations that impact us and our communities.
  • Seeds of Creation, –  Ever wonder what its like to be a filmmaker, journalist, storyteller, ? Don’t let media outlets speak for you, become your own content creator, share your experience of the movement through your own lenses. Learn the power of your stories and how to create your own multimedia platform.
  • Visions of the Future: Where do we go from here? We are the movement!  The leadership role of immigrant youth in the movement and developing new leaders.
and of course lots of time to connect, get to know each other and have fun at the pool!
We hope you decide to join us this year! Register today!
