The EYM (Educating Young Minds) seminar was an educational event held June 18, 2011 at West Los Angeles College geared to introducing youth to the many different occupational fields available. The help and kindness we received from the volunteers was amazing! There were not as many in attendance as hoped, but the students who came were eager and ambitious. The interaction during the seminar was very active as many students had answers and opinions on the information covered.
On the feedback form many students wrote that they hoped TAPS would come to their school. Of the students who chose to write their school name, the schools included Crenshaw High School, Connection Academy, Dodson Magnet School, and Orthopedic Medical Magnet School. Other students in this group are home schooled.
Some of the students felt the best part of the seminar was learning about bullying, the workbooks, learning about the affects of drugs and alcohol, audience participation, to drive your own life, that they had a chance to ask questions, making better choices, media influence, and the content.
Thank you to all who assisted and all who participated in this worthwhile event!
