Teen Program Open House

Martha's Table's Teen Program hosted an open house this past Friday to highlight the completion of projects they have been working on. The Teen Program provides life skills, career skills and personal growth workshops to 37 teens from our community.

February was Black History Month, and for a final project, the teens focused on the topic "Is a Minority President Enough?" The teens debated using philosophies and history they had studied such as past black liberation struggles, the history of Martin Luther King, and Black Nationalsim.

Art and Media
Some of the teens focused on creating a "Debut Album" and built a story behind their album. They worked in our IBM Lab to create unique cover albums using graphic design. Who knows maybe they will be designing for Jay-Z's next album
