Youth Explosion 2009

The Problem

Youth Explosion 2009 is a teen talent exhibition and urban musical designed to address the topics of poverty, teen pregnancy, abstinence, gang violence, and drug abuse. We are combining creative skits and musical performances with live poetry readings and keynote speaking in which the cast and crew is 90% teens.

Plan of Action

This two-day community event will also consist of seminar sessions to bring community awareness to non-profit programs available to them from both the secular and religious communities. Youth Explosion will take place in the fall of 2009. During the event we will be providing registration packets containing valuable information for parents and a synopsis of the seminar. The information provided will help parents to identify if their children are involved in sex, violent activities or drug abuse. They will also have information on how to address issues specific to their child. We have worked diligently putting together information relevant to the community. We have submitted several grants, of which we are receiving many positive responses. We are now recruiting talent from within the community to begin practices. We have also reserved the Community College Auditorium for the event.

Project Updates

We are currently looking to expand to a second show in a different venue, Also Youth Explosion is now a nonprofit talent agency.
