Thomas Crane Public Library is running a new program that students can join AND can earn community service hours for. The program is called Real Talk. It is held on Mondays starting January 13th from 6-8 in the Computer Lab – Free pizza dinner will be served as well. In this program, you will discuss the issues that are important to them. Twice a month, teen leaders lead their peers to participate in activities that promote youth voice, encourage socioemotional learning, and develop an awareness of social justice issues in our community. The series begins with discussions about trust, family, friends, community, relationships, identity, personality, and gratitude.We invite the group to choose the themes they want to discuss. Real Talk aims to help teens build skills needed to become engaged members in their communities, while providing a safe space for them to discuss issues that affect them daily. If you would like to participate, just show up at the first meeting. Make sure you bring your community service forms to be signed!
