한인생활상담소 청소년 프로그램 위캔 (WeKAN)과 유스캔 (YouthKAN)이

이번 여름 캠프를 개최하며 관심있는 청소년들의 많은 참여를 바랍니다!

이 캠프는 한국계 청소년들이 야외활동을 즐기며, 자신들의 정체성을 탐구하는 가운데, 하나의 공동체를 이루어 가는 기회를 제공할 것입니다. 그리고 무엇보다 중요한 이번 여름 캠프의 목적은 학생들이 새 학년 학교생활을 시작하기 전에 한껏 즐거운 시간을 보내는 것입니다!

 

글레이셔 피크 청소년 지원협회(Glacier Peak Institute)의 협력으로 개최되는 이번 캠프 위캔 (WeKAN)은 한국계 중학생들을 대상으로 하는 4일 일정 (08/08-08/12)의 프로그램으로 다링톤 (Darrington)과 에드먼즈 (Edmonds) 지역에서 진행됩니다.

다링톤에서는 낚시, 활쏘기, 지역 식물 탐구, 래프팅 등의 활동이 계획되어 있습니다.  

에드먼즈에서 진행될 카누, 하이킹, 게잡기 등의 활동은 학생들이 지역 생태계 상호관계에 대해서 배우는 기회도 제공할 것입니다!

한인생활상담소가 제공하게 될 교통편은 매일 오전 8시에 에드먼즈에서 출발하여 오후 5시 30분에 돌아올 예정입니다.

 

고등학생 대상 캠프 유스캔 (YouthKAN)은 3박 4일 (07/25-07/29) 일정으로 아예코 (Ayeko) 농장에서 진행됩니다.

각기 다른 이민 배경을 가진 학생들은 이 곳에서 수확의 기쁨을 주는 땅에 대해 이해하고 감사하며, 스토리텔링, 농사짓기, 야외에서 살아남는 방법들을 배우고, 자신들의 문화와 정체성에 대해 깊이 생각해 보는 시간들을 갖게 될 것입니다.

참가자들은 7월 25일 오전 8시 30분에 에드먼즈에 있는 한인생활상담소에서 출발하여 7월 29일 밤 11시에 돌아올 예정입니다.

참가 학생의 가족들은  29일 마지막 저녁 식사에 함께 참여하실 수 있습니다.

YouthKAN

“Our mission is to change the pressure that negatively impacts
the mental health of Asian American youth.”

With support from King County Best Start for Kids, YouthKAN was formed in 2019. The Council works to mobilize both students and community members towards action on injustices that impact the health and wellbeing of our Asian American communities. YouthKAN meets throughout the school year to share stories and to strategize for policy and culture change. 

 

Council members are from across the Puget Sound and are brought together by their passion for dismantling the model minority myth and its impact on youth mental health. Council members hold many different identities, have different hobbies and interests but are brought together by their shared Asian American identity.

Youth who are interested in learning more

about the council or to apply can visit YouthKAN’s website, www.youthkan.net.

In previous years youth have participated in the following:

  • Public forums and workshops

  • Community interviews

  • Moving in Soliday 

  • Events for the community

  • The YouthKAN storytelling scholarship was created in 2020 through the generosity of community members. This scholarship fund was created to support youth in our community who are working toward social change and (re)defining what it means to be a Korean American youth today. This is a youth lead scholarship where YouthKAN council members vision and ideate scholarshop prompts, aligning with the work of the YouthKAN council. This scholarship fund encourages youth to share prose, music, art and poetry in addressing questions about social justice, identity, and mental health.

  • The Scholarship awards two categories of awards: Community Award and YouthKAN award to recognize both youth in our community as well as youth participating in the YouthKAN Council. To learn more about the scholarship and view previous year’s submissions please visit www.youthkan.net.

  • *Ayeko Farm is a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) and family-centered space, where folks can come to feel comfortable on the land and connect to nature, explore culture through food, medicine, and nature, and nourish and heal. We try to grow food with the least harm to the earth, and we focus on growing food that is important to many different cultures. We are making this space available for farmers who have previously lost access to land through colonial violence, forced migration, or institutional racism. We create space for people to celebrate and maintain culture, earn income, and build community.
