We’re excited to announce that Project WHAT! is coming to San Francisco. With that said, we’ve extended our recruitment deadline for San Francisco youth to Friday, June 7th. Please continue to help us get the word out. I’ve attached an updated flyer.
San Francisco youth get PAID to share your story. Project WHAT! is looking for youth between the ages of 14 and 19 who have had a parent in jail or prison and are willing to share their experience. We are looking for youth who share our desire to increase awareness of what it’s like to have a parent in prison or jail, and to improve services for youth with incarcerated parents. As a member of Project WHAT!, you will work with a writing instructor to write a true story based on your personal experience of having a parent incarcerated; speak publicly at conferences and workshops (including sharing the story you wrote); and facilitate trainings for adults and youth. You will receive support and training to achieve these goals. For more information about Project WHAT!, visit: www.communityworkswest.org, find us on Facebook.com/CWProjectWHAT or Text (415) 531-2649.
