Hey there, everyone,
we’re working on putting together the 2013 YAG (April 13-15th, in South China) workshop schedule and we want you to help host it!
It can be anything from a discussion to a skill share to a study group, you name it we’ll give you space for it.
Especially desired are ‘How To’ workshops on organizing, facilitating, and any skill you’d like to share, and 101 discussions on sexism/ racism/oppression/ consent/safer sex…. if you’ve got knowledge you’d like to share, or just want to lead a discussion about something that you see a lack of discourse around, let us know! If you have already talked to us about hosting something, email us anyway so that we can check in and make sure you’re on the schedule.

We are also happy to announce that there is a paid position available for one local food minded youth who would like to learn the ropes of catering the YAG. It is a commitment of 3 days, along with meeting with our other caterer (Jessie) and helping to gather food before the gathering. The best part is that this catering job could be an annual position for the right person, as Jessie is looking for someone to fill her very lovely shoes. If you think you’d like to fill this role, or know someone who may, please let us know. The one condition is that we’re hoping the position can be filled by someone who still identifies as youth.

If you’d like to get involved as a cook or a workshop host, let us know!
Also, feel free to join us for our second 2013 organizing meeting this coming Saturday, the 23rd at the Meg Perry Center in Portland, from 2-4 pm.

Thank you for your support, stay warm, and we hope to hear from you.
-Emma
