What can we expect of your staff working with youth? Please feel free to look over our “Working with Youth Procedures” book that all staff and volunteers must review.
Can I rent your space for a private or public event? No. We are a youth-driven space and not a rental business or facility. If you’d like to partner on an event with us that is youth centered and youth driven, you can contact us. However, we no longer rent the space. If you are seeking other rental facilities, we suggest the Edison Neighborhood Association, Jericho Town, the Epic Center, the Douglass Center, and the Northside Association for Community Development.
What’s your story? How did you get here? Please check out our “About us” section for some of our 15 year history. You can also read this article about our founder, Michelle Johnson.
Do you work with schools and other organizations? Yes! We go to Parchment High School, Loy-Norrix High School, Comstock High School, Kalamazoo Central High School and the Juvenile Home for 1-2 day workshops that introduce youth to spoken-word, slam poetry and creative writing through a strong social and emotional lens. Even if you’re already teaching it, we bring some fresh faces to the room. Schedule a visit to your classroom or organization by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
