Programs & Events for Teens

Join us for a lively and free-ranging discussion of current world affairs with facilitator Michael Wood. 

There seems to be no end to world-wide drama. Brexit marches forward, with no one quite sure where they are going; Donald Trump might end up playing checkers with Bernie Madoff; Mexico has elected a left-leaning populist President; Brazil has elected a right-leaning populist President; Venezuela might actually disappear; Pakistan is headed to the IMF (again); China & India are both stirring; And it looks like the Middle East could have an Arab Autumn. 

Join us for a lively discussion of current events on the world scene!

Saturday August 24 at 2pm Skinhead
Brad  was a white 18-year-old punk, in and out of trouble with the law, a street brawler already in his fourth high school, a kid without direction and a prime target for a neo-Nazi recruiter promising comradeship in a gang of “like-minded” men, a place where Brad could finally find what he wanted most: belonging.  Skinhead tells Brad’s story — how he spent 13 years in “the movement,” climbing the ranks from skinhead rabble-rouser to the Canadian boss for an ultra-violent US gang called Volksfront.
