AAYLC and AES News
Another successful installment of the AAYLC: Ambassador Engagement Series was held on Saturday, March 2 at Concordia University. This was the third ever meeting. And, in addition to many returning AES students, a few new, first-time AES students came ready to get into action. The focus of the third AES conference was critical thinking and a mock-debate on the negative impact of stereotyping was staged during the first half of the day.
In the afternoon, Arlene Kimura and Lore Wintergreen from the East Portland Action Committee joined the conference to teach the students about the logistics for planning a community project. After doing some critical thinking in brainstorming ideas for a project, the AES students conceived a new community project and C.A.S.C. (Creating A Safer Community) was born! The purpose of C.A.S.C., as designed by the AES students, is to help children in middle school gain a head-start with honing organizational skills which they will carry with them to become responsible, productive adults. With the help of Lore and Arlene, the students formulated a plan of action and made commitments to follow-through to get this project off the ground! Now, with the main AAYLC Conference just around the corner, the excitement just continues to build!
