WB : How you like me now?

Who doesn't love a friendly game of competition? Well, today our WB mentor and mentees had the opportunity to play a little game we like to call "How you like me now?" We created the game so that mentors and mentees could see "how well they know each other". It was fun to witness people become shocked at times after each answer was revealed because their response was different from their mentor or mentee.This just goes to show you, "you learn something new everyday!" I believe everyone had a great time at this session, I know I did! :)

UOFA 2013 Last Session

This year, our Urban Oasis Film Academy participants were able to create and produce 6 films that will be entered in the Bresee's Film Festival! This is a culmination of weekly sessions since the beginning of the year and it was through the diverse, collective efforts that these films became a reality. We would like to thank our mentees, volunteers, staff and partners for making this year's Urban Oasis Film Academy a success!

Viacom's Slang Pictionary

In our recent session with Viacom, mentees and mentors participated in Slang Pictionary! We started off with a generation exchange where our matches had the opportunity to share their experiences in high school- trends, music, politics, culture and anything in between. Then we transitioned to our slang pictionary where mentees and mentors had to draw slang, or informal terms that are currently being used or were used. It was a great session that allowed our matches to learn the different terms they use or used growing up and the different experiences associated with them!
