Student Career Alternatives Program hosted an event this past weekend. Originally it was going to be a block party for youth in the Pittsburgh community just south of downtown, but we had to change the location due to extreme heat.
Luckily, not far from our original location is DA Stanton park, which features fun sprinklers and water cannons(perhaps the only cannons SCAP can get behind).
Despite the last minute venue change, we still had a very good turnout. Young people got an opportunity to chill out in the water, enjoy a nutritious meal, and get to know each others. Topics of conversation included how to get a summer job, GED preparation, and conflict resolution.
Our next SCAP event will be held in late July at Wonderroot Community Art Center, where youth will learn how to shoot and edit their own short films.
