I was really pleased with the outcome of our Phase II student-led Youth Salon this year. On the afternoon of March 26, students led interactive presentations and audience members rotated between presentations. This was followed by unique, creative, student performances that have formed the basis of our typical Youth Salon.
Here are some observations by Phase II students about what made this year different:
-It was run more by students this year. The presentations and MC-ing of the performances were all led by students this time.
-In past years, the Youth Salon was a performance, with a point; this year, it felt more like a point, with a performance.
-There was more involvement with the audience--discussions and real conversation with younger students and parents.
