Another week of summer camp is flying by! Our youth are learning all about architecture, construction, virtual reality, yoga, art, and non-violence, with so much more to come. Our partners at Drafting Dreams and YogaMotif are sharing all of their wisdom, and we're hoping you'd be interested in doing the same! We learn from people we admire and that always includes family, friends, and community members. Comment and engage with this post if you've taught a young person something you care about and let us know if you'd like to teach our youth too. Your stories and expertise inspire and empower these incredible young minds! ... See MoreSee Less
