LAPL- Palms- Rancho Park Teens are Leading Change

Librarian Emily Meehan is calling all teens this summer for Los Angeles Public Library's initiative "Teens Leading Change." Palms Rancho Park is teaming up with the Mar Vista and Robertson branches to to create their program "Support and Advocate for Youth in Need." Emily asks "What does homelessnes look like?" Did you think of families and fellow students? After a short interview workshop, first time reporters Rana Almahdi, Rasha Almahdi, and Ben Santos, interviewed Emily to find out what the project entails, its goals, and how to get involved. Great job team!

If you are a teen who wants to advocate for a stronger community, contact EMeehan@LAPL.org (Librarians Rule!!!)

If you are experiencing homelessness, Emily gave us some resources to pass on.
