TIPS for Teen is BACK in 2021 with a new format which will allow teens to learn, grow and connect even more than previously! The TIPS session will now be spread out over two weeks, where the first week will entail an interesting conversation with a guest speaker. Then, the following week, participants will continue the discussion among themselves (without a speaker), writing and sharing their TIPS letters as a tool to explore the topic more.
As part of our Black History Month celebration, we are excited to welcome guest speaker Samuel Williams, a local educator, to our February 23rd session, where he will talk with the group about "Seattle and Black History".
Part 2 of this session will be on March 2nd.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Sam has been teaching students in the Seattle area for over 20 years. His passion is using his faith to make real connections with people. While at school, the classroom becomes a place for great conversations and deeper understanding, centered around Social Studies. Sam has been married for over 11 years to his partner Tamara and they have two kids, Alex 16-year-old, high school student, and Sabelle, a 10-year-old 4th grader. Sam's passions are researching lost history, creating & listening to music, spending quality time with family, and trying out new food recipes.
ABOUT THE TOPIC:
When most people hear the words, Black History, often they think of everywhere in the U.S. except Seattle. Our part of the country has so much more to do with this amazing history, including key elements of the civil rights movement. Let's explore some of those events and hear about the role that our region played in the fight for freedom.
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR:
Our facilitator for TIPS for Teens is Anika Tara Rao. Anika is currently in 10th grade. She enjoys singing, cooking, travelling and laughing with friends and family. Anika was inspired by her mom Dr. Anu Taranath to create safe spaces for talking about sometimes uncomfortable topics. She loves leadership and is very excited and thankful to be able to connect with you all!
TIPS is a book written by Dr. Anu's UW students during their study abroad program in India, encouraging us to see ourselves and our surroundings anew via thought-provoking letters to Things, Ideas, People and Self (TIPS).
