The Hive Youth Council Meets! 


Youth representing MOUSE, the Rubin Museum, the POINT, MoMA, and Hive HQ gathered at Global Kids to learn about the new launch of the Hive Youth Council. The group is intended to represent the young people served by member organizations of the Hive Learning Network. Over the course of the year they will be responsible for helping to plan network wide events such as game jams, Emoti-Con!, and service days to name a few. Along with being a committee that represents the youth voice in the Hive, they will also be trained in digital media skills such as coding, game design, engineering, and much more. 



The first session had students taking part in teambuilding activities and sharing what are some opportunities they hope to take part in as members of the council. It was evident that aside from learning new skills, they were interested in taking lead and educating their fellow peers. One of the popular requests was to visit other Hive member organizations throughout the year in order to get a better understanding of their missions and interact with their youth members.
