    Youth Cultural Empowerment Summer Camp

    The Spady black history museum and cultural center is operated by EPOCH whose mission is to collect, preserve and share the culturally diverse history of the black communities in Palm Beach County.

    The Youth Cultural Empowerment Program (YCEP), is a year-round educational program that focuses on building self-esteem, cultural identity and social and civic responsibility in youth. The YCEP, the next generation of the Spady’s Kids Cultural Club, was created to address the need to provide youth with an arts and cultural heritage immersion program to enhance the Palm Beach County School District’s black history curriculum in an historical environment.

    Youth served annually: thirty 4th and 5th graders.
    YCEP includes a 6-week summer immersion program and 9 months of black history-based cultural activities after school.
    Integrated activities include visual arts, theatre, literary arts, field trips, exhibit creation and installation.
    Activities are facilitated by 3 Palm Beach County School District teachers, 1 professional teaching artist, and 4 museum educators.
    Evaluation methods: logic model evaluation tool, pre- and post-tests, recorded interviews and project materials evaluated by educators.

    Initial Outcomes:
    Youth will use arts instruction to channel understanding through a creative process.
    Youth will have a better understanding of the African Diaspora in Florida.
    Youth will connect their understanding of cultural heritage and history to their lives and community.
