Thanks YASBIZ & Street Smart Ventures for having all of us yesterday! I had a great time! YASBIZ, in collab with a few other organizations, put together an awesome Learning Workshop event for young adults. We had the pleasure of joining them and it was nothing short of amazing. More than 80 people were in attendance and every young adult was there doing something, whether that was dancing, eating, socializing, participating in an activity or teaching one. There were more than 10 workshops which included everything from culinary art to mixing the newest, and hottest might I add, songs of the year on Steve’s DJ equipment. Young adults decorated cookies, learned how to make their own flavored seltzer, made hot sauce from scratch (which was very tasty), created art pieces with wood burning techniques, worked on problem solving skills with puzzles, made jewelry and even sold some of their own special pieces.
Thanks so much for putting on such a great event, and of course, for inviting us. It is always a great time when we can all get together.
Here’s a few photos from the event.
That sounds like so much fun! So glad there was a great turnout!
