Accountability & Responsibility: Who Gon' Check Me?

What does it mean? Who do we let into our space? Who are we accountable to? Who are we accountable for? If no one has the permission to challenge you, or hold you accountable and responsible, then you are on your own and none of us was meant to be that way. Let’s learn how to leverage your community.

Communication & Listening: "I Got It. I'm Good"

Saying "I got it" or "I'm good" when you don't and you aren't robs us of the results that we want. If we don't listen, and assume that we have the instructions, we're not likely to get the results that we want. It's OK to actively listen to get the understanding and to ask for clarification for the understanding. The clearer the instructions, the closer our actions get us to the results that we want.

As African American history, knowledge and books are being removed from schools, we the Teens of the South Central Region, aim to provide resources in an effort to counteract library closures in select schools in the Houston area. The goal is to promote literacy and increase awareness of African American culture and its contributions to literature.

The teens will organize, assemble and prepare books for distribution to donate 800 cinch bags filled with books to Mission of Yahweh, SHAPE Community Center, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Houston at Garden City and Texas Children's Cancer and Hematology Centers.
