YOUTH SPACE

Recognizing the diverse needs of our youth, HAWA has coordinated a line-up of Southeast Asian Youth programs that focuses on empowering leadership in youth through community organizing and involvement.

PROJECT VISIBLE

Project VISIBLE seeks to engage youth in utilizing the power of media to champion Southeast Asian visibility as a way to promote gender equality and community connection through the use of media; to share, connect, and talk about how root causes of violence effects the healthy of our communities.

The 12-month long project is intended to engage youth and their families in conversations that address historical and cultural oppression in Southeast Asian communities in Milwaukee, while demonstrating the use of media as a positive tool in sharing and learning about healthy self-love, identity, and supportive relationships as a way to promote prevention through identifying and making relevant root causes of violence.

Through our Project VISIBLE prevention efforts, we aim to:

    • Increase engagement of SEA young adults and youth in creating culturally-relevant anti-violence media to bring awareness to their community
    • Expand existing HAWA outreach that promote sexual assault/domestic violence advocacy support services

SISTERHOOD PROGRAM

KID'S CORNER

Youth Sisterhood is an evening program for girls between the ages of 12-17 that meets every Thursday from 4pm-7pm (School Year) that helps youth develop leadership, confidence, and self awareness. The sisterhood program believes in empowering teen girls to become leaders in their families and in the community.

Kid’s Corner is for children under the age of 12. Our sessions are provided for children with the opportunities to build healthy relationships with other individuals in a safe, culturally sensitive environment that encourage personal and social growth, arts and crafts, and homework help during the school year.

Volleyball is used as a tool of engagement where boys and young men between the ages of 15-20 are invited to participate in understanding the impact of toxic masculinity on the lives of men, boys and masculine identities. The Building Brotherhood boys’ program believes in investing in boys and young men to be allies to end gender-based violence and the many forms of oppression that perpetuates violence.
