SUMMER OF ENGAGEMENT
Summer of Engagement (SOE) is our way of celebrating summer with our youth by providing them with exciting learning experiences in a variety of social settings. Each of our SOE events incorporates a fun social activity (i.e. camping, movie night, kayaking, etc.), food, and topics critical to their development (i.e. accountability, empowerment, non-violent communication, etc.). This summer 2022 we focused our SOE events around restorative justice and incorporated different aspects of this practice into our activities. Among the many restorative justice activities, we included in our events, some of these include storytelling, reflection, brainstorming, and strategic thinking. Above all, the most important part of the Coalition’s Summer of Engagement is to provide our youth with a much-needed sense of support, understanding, and community.
