Radio Blog - August 14, 2018

This week on Catch Da Flava Youth Radio on Radio Regent host Diamond and Beverly talked about Square Circle; a program for youth that teaches social circus and other creative arts with the goal of empowering youth to become directors of their own lives. We shared a clip ;from their showcase on August 10th; in which we interviewed Clarence the Executive director and founder of Square Circle as wells as participants both children and youth L.I.T (leaders in training) and of course parents of the participants.

Square Circle; based in Regent Park; focuses on youth ages 9 to 14 in underserved neighbourhoods. These youth then at the age of 16 have the opportunity to become leaders in training and assist the instructors. With this program offering free in-school, after-school, march break and summer sessions new ways to build confidence resilience as well as educate youth.

Teaching these youth aft forms from ​a mixed variety of activities such as juggling, poi, hula-hoop, aerial techniques, clowning, pyramids, dance, acting/improvisation and photography you can truly sense the feeling of creativity in a collaborative and fun environment.
