Youth-Led Restorative Dialogue 1: Music for Milestones: Fostering a Symbiotic Relationship Between Music & the Mind

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The restorative dialogues are youth-led and provide attending youth with an opportunity to network with one another, while also discussing topics focused on gender equity, racial justice, and education as liberation.

We will begin by explaining the origins of Music for Milestones and key reasons for its relevance to society in today, especially in a virtual climate where mental health is very important. We will also address the leadership obstacles and methods we utilized, as high school students, embarking on a rather demanding task of founding an entire organization to motivate other youth with similar intentions. Then, we will run a guided listening activity through drawing (where members in the Zoom will participate and share out), resulting in a discussion and Q & A afterwards.
