KYCC held its second Annual Unwind Your Mind Youth Summit on Friday, April 28, at Anderson Munger Family YMCA. The purpose of Unwind Your Mind Koreatown Youth Summit is to create a safe space for high school students to build community with each other, while unwinding with art, music, and other interactive workshops. The evening provided a fun and engaging environment for students to connect with peers, explore new activities, and take a break from the pressures of school and everyday life.
In addition to the exciting workshops and activities, there were raffle prizes, free food, and service hours for the students. The event also included a resource fair, which provided youth with resources that covered topics such as mental health, cultural identity, the impact of second-hand smoking, and much more. This event was a great opportunity for our youth community in Koreatown to come out and experience a fun event after school!
The planning efforts for the second annual Unwind Your Mind Youth Summit began in January of 2023 in collaboration with KYCC Prevention Education, Youth Services and Clinical Services. This event was created with the intention to foster a safe space for young people to build connections with each other and learn and engage in substance-free wellness activities.
