Youth Affinity Group: Meet-up

Saratoga BLM, Saratoga Educational Equity Network (SEEN), Stomping Grounds Camp and C.R.E.A.T.E. Community Studios are teaming up to form and support Youth Affinity Groups for BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and allies ages 10-13 and 14-18. During this event we will be brainstorming our vision for the affinity group, making art, enjoying goodies by the fire and more!

This event is intended to bring Youth BIPOC and LGBTQ+ individuals, as well as allies, together to explore the creation of Affinity Groups in Saratoga Springs. Affinity groups are intentional gatherings of people who share a similar identity. These groups are places of reflection, dialogue, and support – safe spaces where youth can process their emotions, develop a stronger sense of self, and build a common language to address issues of race, ethnicity, sexuality, and gender diversity.
