Last week we attended the Best Initiative Youth Work Intensive Conference at Harvard and met lots of really cool folks doing great work with young people in and around the Boston area.   We spent two days networking, checking out youth projects and attending workshops centered on creative self-expression, health and wellness, youth organizing and social justice, among other topics.  All in all, it was a great experience.  The Flagship now has some new processes to help get youth projects started and some awesome connections in the community that may lead to future collaborations.

Everyone at the conference was invited to participate in  a Clubhouse vlog, and luckily for us, quite a few people stepped up to speak.  Check out what they had to say:

Thanks to everyone who collaborated with me on this video project.  Feel free to share it and use it in your organizations.

Also, a special thanks to Brenda of the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network for the introduction to Best Initiative.
