TO THE CLUB NO YOUTH PROGRAM
I joined Club No to learn about the arts, meet new friends and continue to build my confidence. This program has shown me how to lead and deal with bullying in a positive way that happens at my schoo.
Club No has inspired me to go after my deams of becoming a major recording artist. I am excited about participating as one of thehost for the teen forum.
I am very shy and I would not say much when I started the program, but Ms. Siri and the other instructors helped me feel comfortable and I now have new friends and understand what being a good leader is all about.
When I started the program, I didn't want to say much, just only to my friends, then Mrs. Siri gave me a leadership responsibility. This helped me start talking more and it showed me how to lead a team. I am excited about participating the peace rally and forum that we are putting together soon! Now, I am part of the mentoring program that is helping me stay focused on attending college.
Teens Keeping It Real Forum was the first in-school televised teen forum created in the year '2000 to help teens "think" before they "react". Our goal is to help prevent Violence, Teen Pregnancy, Homelessness and other negative issues that impact our teens daily, while increasing their desire for high er education. TKIR is a "voice" for teens worldwide! Reality Check is our Teen Soap Opera that portrays scripted scenes based on the topic of our discussion.
The show is schedule to air again on television in the winter of 2016. We are currently accepting applications into this program for aspiring teen actors, writers and back-end production.
