We propose to provide health and wellness and media broadcasting training for Santa Clara County's under-served youth. These sessions focus on helping youth improve their physical health, nutrition, and academic preparedness for higher learning. This year, we have been working with at-risk and high-risk youth delivering pro-social recreation activities that will be held at Oak Grove High School (San Jose, CA) during the summer, and continue throughout the year. Our health and wellness programs emphasize cardio activities, resistance training, dietary intake, and appropriate activities centered-on healthy body to mass indexes.
NextHitz Youth's Entrepreneur and Fine Arts Programs will be available throughout the Bay Area. Individuals will participate in an Entrepreneurship and Business Development project. Our Entrepreneur Program assists individuals in forming groups where they will research and develop their own business ideas from start to finish. Qualified and experienced instructors will teach these groups. Each component offers participants the opportunity to work in groups, learn new skills, and learn more about themselves. We also offer programs focusing on life skills, communication skills, organizational skills, financial education, and creative arts.
