YLDP at Freedom School

Youth Leadership Development Program staff and youth had a great summer at Freedom School! Some highlights include:

  • They attended a National Day of Action with other Freedom Schools in the twin cities area, as well as all other Freedom Schools in the country at the same time, and marched against gun violence to the state capital. 

  • They participated in youth science day at the science museum with the other Freedom Schools. 

  • The young women’s group attended the Hearts of Our People exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.  It was a guided tour and the girls were quite impressed and proud. 

  • The tipi set and take down went really well with the older scholars helping to set up and then a ton of kids with the take down, but they learned some lessons and were able to see how heavy and careful a person needs to be with those tipi poles.
