Fifteen new cases, all new team members, two new captains what more is required for a comeback to the Ethics BowlWe are delighted to share that after a year long break Educate Youth will have a team, Ypsilanti Youth,  participating at the Ethics Bowl 2020. Over the past six years we have observed the positive impact of learning about Philosophy and Ethics. The participating students improve in their reading, vocabulary skills, critical thinking, the ability to look at important decisions from a number of perspectives, and decision making process. The Ethics Bowl is one more way Educate Youth supports youth in developing positive attitudes towards learning.

Prevent and Prevail – Fall 2017!

Prevent and Prevail Fall17 Design 1

Great news! Prevent and Prevail will be continuing with another run in September!

Youth ages 12-17 who are LGBTQ+ or allies meet to discuss sex, STDs, pregnancy, drugs, consent, and more in a safe, welcoming space.

The next run will be on Wednesdays from 4 – 6:30 pm on September 13, 20, 27, and October 4, 11, and 18.

Prevent & Prevail is a program created by youth between the ages of 13 and 16 after learning that the HIV infection rate is highest in the 13-23 age group.  The goal of Prevent & Prevail is to have open discussions in a safe, confidential, fun, and all inclusive environment.  Teen facilitators receive over 20 hours of training before leading a series of information sessions and discussions for their peers.
