The Culture CLINIC
Dedicated to producing thriving and high performing youth while instilling leadership and cultural education. The culture clinic is offered to juniors and seniors in Palm Beach County after school for one hour twice a month. The students will participate in a 4-part series workshop that will seek to educate, build financial literacy, and connect them to the continent of Africa through African American studies, community development skills, entrepreneurship training, and scholarship opportunities. The workshops are curated to challenge the students and empower a generation of change agents.
In the United States nearly 46 million people identify themselves as Black or African American.16% of those report having mental health issues, that is over 7 million people. Studies show that Black and African American teenagers are more likely to attempt suicide than their white counterparts. Treatment issues, attitudes, and access to insurance all deter the community from seeking and receiving the mental health support they deserve.
With the Mindful ME! program teens and adults in Palm Beach County will have access to FREE mental health services. Through partnering with local Licensed Mental Health Counselors individuals will receive individualized treatment and support.
Our Program Goals:
To provide 4 individuals in 2021 with financial support for 9 therapy sessions.
THE CULTURE CLUB
Because the African American community is disproportionately affected in the areas of health/wellness outcomes, economic education, and accessibility to wealth building resources, we have created workshops designed to connect the community with leading community experts. Through our workshops, adults in Palm Beach County will gain access to intricate knowledge in financial literacy, credit repair, home buying assistance, entrepreneurship, and health and wellness education.
For many, access to affordable housing, quality healthcare and education for their children is a luxury. It is why Juneteenth of PBC exists.
