A Typical YouthCaN Meeting

YouthCaN meets every Friday at 5:30. Kids from across New York City commute far and wide to the American Museum of Natural History. Upon arrival, we convene in a circle to discuss the agenda. Every Meeting starts off with a personal introduction. Name, age, and school is usually included along with the answer to a unique question. This meeting we all went around and answered this; “What animal would you like to be and why?” Afterwards we discuss upcoming events and activities and the ever looming annual conference. Tomorrow, we will be hiking in Van Cortlandt park. We have discussed our parts in the Conference including committees and workshops. Meeting notes are always recorded and can be found in the iEarn forum. YouthCaN is a lot of fun. Making connections and having a shared interest and devotion to one cause are some of the best things about being in YouthCan.
