    African American Female Excellence Youth Forum
    Thursday, January 18, 2018

    West Oakland Youth Center, 3233 Market St, Oakland, CA 94608

    African American Female Excellence is hosting our first Youth Forum! High school students, parents, and faculty are invited to enjoy this free event. Registration begins at 5:30pm and dinner will be served at 6:00pm. A fishbowl discussion about mental health and healing will take place between faculty and students. This youth-led event will be facilitated by AAFE interns. Our goal is for students to be aware of available resources and to inspire dialogue that promotes more discussion and removes stigmas around mental heath within the black community.

    HERE to register.
