Happenings

Horizons Summer Youth Program Combats Bullying

This summer the Horizons Youth Program is partnering with CrossRoads Panorama to write, produce, and showcase a play on the topic of bullying. Youth participants will create a montage of theatrical scenes to bring awareness to family, friends, change agents and concerned others. The goals of the theater project are to help youth identify resolutions to the issue of bullying in order to turn negatives into positives and to shed light on their experiences so the adults in their lives can come together to help resolve this critical issue. Elected officials, youth-serving professionals, and community residents will be invited to participate in a post-performance discussion about bullying to further explore the lessons learned.

To further highlight the importance of peaceful conflict resolution, the children/youth will also organize a Peace Parade to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s philosophy of non-violence. They will create signs with peaceful messages and march from Sabathani Community Center to Martin Luther King Park on Monday, August 18th, at 10:30 A.M.

Horizons Youth Program provides outof-school-time academic support, STEM curriculum, homework assistance, and enrichment activities for children and youth ages five to 14 years old. Cross Roads Panorama is directed by Dr. Joyce Marrie, Ph.D. Its mission is to equip youth with positive live-long learning experiences that will empower purpose, self-worth and change.

The play will take place in Sabathani’s auditorium on Thursday, August 21st at 6:00 p.m.

The theater project and Peace Parade are made possible through a Minnesota State Arts Board grant and UCare. The Horizons Youth Program is supported by the Greater Twin Cities Area United Way, Sheltering Arms Foundation, Carol Fitzgerald Foundation, and the City of Minneapolis 612 Youth Engagement Project.
