The Youth Symposium is designed to motivate students in ways that will increase their desire to work towards academic achievement. This year, the Youth Symposium will be conducted by Erik Cork. His program, Rap, Rhythm and Rhyme: Rebuilding the Writing Foundation, is an intensely fast-paced workshop that empowers students to systematically organize their thoughts and communicate them effectively on paper. Through music, movement and rap, students from the greater New Orleans Area and surrounding parishes will actively participate in a “visually stimulating and physically intoxicating buffet of teachable techniques.”
The Youth Symposium convenes on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 8:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Lunch is provided for the students. Although the session is designed for students, it is open to all.
