What We Learned

Welcome to Jam4Justice 2015!

On April 24, 2015 the Philadelphia Youth Network and The Bamboo Project, Inc. sponsored Jam4Justice, a 7.5-hour creative blitz where teams of passionate people collaborated in developing engaging projects that help teens in our City learn about social justice--what it means for them personally, for their neighborhoods, for our city,  our nation and our world.

The Jam was a fantastic day of action, with teams creating projects ranging from a DIY musical on self-love to a 6-week curriculum that integrates digital storytelling and teaches new job skills.

Other groups created an interactive social justice card game, a city-wide project to connect with others based on our food heritage--even a new school and a youth-run cafe that teaches entrepreneurship and features youth artistic talents!

 It was a fantastic day and we look forward to sponsoring more in the future. 

Check out the video below to get a taste of what we created!

 

Special thanks to our friends at the William Way LGBT Community Center at 1315 Spruce Street for providing the space for the Jam.
