Program Description

MAP
MAP is the program for young people entering their first year of LOVE. Young people spend the sessions making connections with each other and LOVE staff, they develop media arts skills, and are introduced to ideas and concepts on Anti-Violence, Anti-Oppression and Non-Violent Communications. Young people must complete 70% of the program before graduating on to Leadership. At the end of the programming year, young folks will showcase their work in an art exhibition. (details to be determined with young folks and facilitator).

Leadership
Leadership Programs build on the themes, concepts, and skills introduced in MAP and open to young people who have successfully completed/graduated from MAP. In addition to the media arts skills developed through MAP, young people develop facilitation skills and lead workshops and Violence Prevention Committees in community. Young people often spend about 2-3 years in the program, increasingly developing youth-driven projects/initiatives and working toward graduating and transitioning out of LOVE as young leaders already connected and engaged in communities.

If volunteers cannot stay for the full length of programming please let the Lead Facilitator or the Program Director know ahead of time.
