LGBTQA+ open mic in partnership with One.n.ten and Pflag a heartwarming success! CCC&Y to host next youth open mic on March 7

Our LGBTQA+ open mic in partnership with One.n.ten and Pflag was a heartwarming success! We had seven youth performers between 11-24years old and 17 folks in the audience. One.n.ten ensured a safe space for all by opening with their safe space guidelines focused on respect, confidentiality, and my personal favorite, “don’t yuck someone else’s yum.” A reminder to enter the space with an open mind. Our minds and hearts exploded with gratitude for the youth. Their vulnerability was most definitely courageous!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Flagstaff and CCC&Y to present Special Training for Bigs on March 10

We are excited to announce we have partnered with the Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth to offer you training on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).

The effects of childhood trauma play out both personally for individuals, but also, have tremendous costs for society.  There is much that society needs to acknowledge about the inequitable experiences of our community members, but also, there is much that all of us can do to mitigate these outcomes such as being a mentor. 

This introductory training will give you foundational knowledge on ACEs as a volunteer working within the community and how you can build resilience within the youth you mentor.

Expect More Arizona — MAPA: The State of Arizona Latino Education,  Power and Influence

MAPA evaluates, measures and reports on the state of Latino education, power and influence. It is intended to be a transparent tool that reflects on the organization’s own efforts as well as those in the ecosystem that have an active role to play in moving the needle forward for Latino youth in our state. The virtual summit unveiled the results of the report and connects the dots between all the issues and policies that have been stacked up against Latino students for decades.

Latinos make up the majority of Arizona’s K-12 student population, representing 46% of the population. Yet Latinos make up only 13% of school board members, and 16% of the teaching workforce in Arizona, meaning critical decisions are not being made with the valuable perspective and wisdom that the Latino community brings to the table.
