We’re super excited to celebrate and uplift FEEST’s 2022-2023 Student Organizer Cohort! We couldn’t be more proud of you all, and all the hard work you did this year to branch out and gain new knowledge and skills! While we hosted this celebration for all of our students graduating from the program, who will be joining us again in August, we also have seniors who are also graduating from high school this year!
‘22-’23 Cohort, y’all have truly impressed us with your passion, hard work, willingness to take on challenges, and dedication to improving our schools and communities. This year, students grew in their leadership, furthered FEEST’s Mental Health Campaign, built relationships with each other, got out on campus to learn more about the issues impacting students’ mental health, hosted panels, spoke with decision-makers, laughed, cried, ate delicious meals, and so much more.
In the words of the mighty Belina: WE DID THAT!!!
Check out some photos from our first in-person graduation since 2019, we played games (and wow did musical chairs get competitive!), ate delicious food thanks to Salima’s Specialties, and gave our students and staff personalized awards for their achievements this school year.
Thank you for being part of our FEEST fam. To both our graduating seniors and high schoolers returning next year, we’re honored to have been a part of your story and can’t wait to see all the incredible things you go on to achieve. Congrats!
You’ve accomplished so much! (I mean, just look at y’alls Campaign Kick Offs, the Mental Health Panel’s, and Earth Day Celebrations you hosted!) Keep learning, growing, and organizing for systemic change for young people everywhere.
I bet you’re wondering: what’s going on for FEEST this Summer now that graduation is over? Well, Summer Stories 2.0 is officially about to start! Summer Stories is a space where students have been welcomed to join to spend time together to make art and center their own voices in the stories they tell! We’re also excited and getting ready for Summer Camp, which will start our 2023-2024 Student Organizer cohort, later this August!
