Movie Matinee

February 23, 2013

On Saturday, February 23th AYO Mentor Program hosted its February Monthly Activity: Movie Matinee, where youth and adults watched the movie Akeelah and the Bee. The movie is about an 11 year-old girl from south Los Angeles with a special gift and the obstacles she deals with in her life. This is a great movie that promoted discussion for our mentors and mentees on a number of topics, but more-so helped our youth gain a better understanding of their own personality. This was a great time and experience for all who attended and was evident by the smiles on the youth’s faces.
