Be an Activist in Your Story

AFP’s Youth Day is a Social Justice Festival for local middle and high school students. We invite educators, activists, and performers to teach young people different ways they can tell their story to improve the world. AFP encourages educators to use AFP’s Youth Day as a tool to support curriculum, build positive classroom culture, and encourage identity and inclusion practices. Youth Day is a perfect opportunity to experience AFP’s Story-Based Learning pedagogy, and decide if you want to engage in teacher training and future programs.

Youth Day is free and AFP provides lunch! Registration opens in January 2020 and attendance is based on a first come, first serve basis. We accept 125 students and guardians. Questions? Please contact Eve Everette, Assistant Director.
