What we’re up to …
Common Grounds Teens have been busy in Taos since January …
They have presented at ….
- Kit Carson Board
- St. James Parish
- Taos Academy
- The Mayor’s office
- Won the Taos Entrepreneurial Network’s “Elevator Pitch” contest!
- Taos Alive
- Taos United (16 teens came)
- We’ve been on the radio several times
The Common Grounds kids coordinated the “Walk on the Plaza” on 3/14 on the #endgunviolence topic (whether a person agrees with that topic or not, their event, the walk to the TCA and the forums that afternoon were AMAZING!)
- Kids went to Santa Fe on 03/24
- Students from THS, TA, VG are all working together to coordinate a 4/20 walk to the plaza. Two schools have given their permission for staff and students to do this. One school did not.
- They presented at Pecha Kucha on 06/14
We continue to work with Daniel Escalante (Reading to End Racism and Interfaith/Intercultural Alliance) for training teens on how to host their own Community Building workshops with and for other teens (and some adults).
