Y-WE Lead Blue: Represent and Code 2018-2019 Application

This Program will be led by Meera Bhardwaj, Nahil Sharkasi, and Samantha Pak. They will facilitate large group dialogues and activities as well as two Learning Communities. Youth will choose between Represent and Code.

Represent explores how women, particularly women of color, are represented in the media and seeks to provide youth with skills to represent themselves. In addition to discussions on representation, youth will learn tangible skills ranging from interviewing a source to designing and laying out a publication. In the past, participants learned how to podcast and make documentary films. Last year, Represent participants wrote articles and produced a Zine.

Code connects youth with science and technology in a fun and accessible way. Last year, they learned how to build apps. They even built an app that was used by participants at Y-WE Career Day. Every year participants have the opportunity to co-create the experience they wish to have, so this year’s focus will be shaped by you.  

The program begins with a Family orientation on October 27 and a weekend long retreat November 9-11. The year will conclude with a Youth Leadership Summit on May 25 and a Y-WE community celebration on June 1.

Upon completion of this application, you will be contacted by a Y-WE staff member to set-up an interview. All participants will be informed if they have been accepted to Y-WE Lead by Monday, October 15, 2018.
