Nexus 3


The Youth Resiliency Institute views the transition of children and youth to adulthood not as a time of risk but as a time of opportunity and profound promise. The exemplary ways in which Black children and youth create meaningful identities in relation to larger socio-political forces carry rich activist ingredients and draw from the Black community's existing strengths based upon historical concepts and restorative capacity. One of the goals of YRI is to elevate the understanding and value of Black youth resiliency and cultural consciousness as a foundation for activism, community regeneration and grassroots public policy development through a holistic rites of passage performing arts approach and process.
