Culture, History & Arts
The Spady Museum’s Youth Cultural Leadership program encourages area youth to learn about their culture and history while expressing themselves through various elements of arts and technology. The program focuses on building self-esteem, cultural identity and social and civic responsibility in youth. The empowerment program provides youth with arts and cultural heritage immersion experiences in Palm Beach County.
Monthly, youth participate in life skills session meetings, both virtually and in-person, led by Jeaneen West. Here they take part in exercise, art activities, social development guest speakers. The popular, life-enrichment sessions allow the youth to bond and increase their capabilities and confidence in a safe, nurturing setting.
In collaboration with its partner, Nerd Alert, the Spady Museum offers tech ride-alongs and shadowing. Julius McGee, president and founder of Nerd Alert, invites his participants to shadow him on tech support appointments, where they tackle issues such as cyber security, general tech help, networking and smart-home setups. McGee also allows them to join in virtually or in person for client web design meetings.
