Proud of Where
Participating explore local history and work with staff at historic sites to brainstorm creative ways of sharing the site's story with future visitors. Teens increase awareness of local history and build self esteem knowing their perspective is valuable, while historic sites are given tools to understand and reach a younger audience!
CITY101 is a crash course in knowing your city! This program provides teens with tools to become leaders in their community.
Step Back is an installation that allows pedestrians and city explorers to see how the places that surround us are constantly changing. This project demonstrates the dramatic changes that occur around us, from demolishing beloved buildings to saving them, and adding new ones in between.
Talk the Block
Talk the Block is a community event benefitting We Are the Next. These events center around a local neighborhood, where we pay tribute to the immigrants, minorities, and small business owners working every day to make our neighborhoods better places to live!
