ART FOR LIFE Youth Forum

On behalf of the Life Smart:?íNuestras Vidas! Youth Art Program and AltaMed Health Services we are inviting youth to participate in the ART FOR LIFE Youth Forum.

The goal of the forum is to expose and engage local youth to the arts, health, cultural and educational resources within Los Angeles. We will bring together youth from the East Los Angeles in this first ever health meets art event.

The ART FOR LIFE Youth Forum will also explore the relationship between arts as an intervention for healthier choices among youth. The forum will consist of Health workshops focusing on HIV/STI Prevention, depression, and healthy relationships and Art workshops on interactive theatre and dance among others. The day will also feature special a talent show showcasing the creativity of local youth.

Community information booths on health and arts as interventions will also be a focus of the forum.

ART FOR LIFE Youth Forum is one more way AltaMed Health Services is committed to reaching out to our youth and providing innovative programming for the community it serves.

The forum is scheduled for Saturday, June 30, 2007 from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm at the Ronald Santos Drop In-Center at 512 S. Indiana Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90063.

Call or e-mail us for a registration form today!!
