Celebrating our Voices: Telling our Stories, Defining our Futures

November 8, 2023


Please Sign Up and Join Us For This Great Opportunity to Let Your Voices Be Heard.

We are excited to share this event with our southern Oregon students, for students 8th-12th Grades, who identify as African American and/or Black.

This program is a four-hour workshop at the University of Oregon, that will give students an opportunity to focus on “Celebrating Our Voices.”

Students will:

Learn to compose and develop stories to help, put in to words, THEIR TRUE experiences in their communities, schools, and state.
Have the opportunity to meet other African American/Black students from across the state in order to network and share experiences.
Create a Journalistic piece of work that will focus on THEIR voices and experiences.

In conjunction with the main organizers of the event, the partners of the Southern Oregon Black and African American Student Success Alliance (SOBAASS) are also providing an opportunity for our students to attend this amazing workshop.

Students will need to register for this event HERE, no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, November 1, 2022. We will reach out to students and Parents once we have your application, for permission slips.

We will also contact each student’s school, once we have their application, to have this program declared as an “EXCUSED Absence.”

Transportation will be provided from southern Oregon from a centralized location. Expect to leave, by bus, no later than 7:30 a.m. and return by 8 p.m. on November 8th.

We will provide a continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks for the day.
