BHC Fresno celebrates community work

On Aug 21, 2012, a celebration at Cecil Hinton center marked two years of community transformation in Fresno with Building Healthy Communities (BHC).

The BHC gallery celebration brought together groups that showed how their work in schools, in neighborhoods, and in prevention makes Fresno a healthier place to live.

The event highlighted Fresno’s rich cultural heritage through dance, including performances from Suab Hmoob Txuj, Edison Youth Cheerleaders and Yoztaltepetl Danzantes Aztecas.

Roughly 400 people turned out for the event, and many people took home fresh produce from the Community Food Bank.

The kNOw Youth Media
The kNOw works to support and equip young people with the journalism and advocacy skills they need to tell their stories and the stories of their communities.

In 2006, over 25 youth began participating in weekly after-school writing workshops where they congregated in the hallway of a two-story building in West Fresno and learned the essentials of creating media and telling their stories. The group evolved over the next five years and is now proudly recognized as The kNOw Youth Media.

Through our program, we create opportunities for our youth participants, who in turn create long-term positive change in their communities. Our approach weaves youth development and youth media innovation to produce our biannual youth publication, multimedia projects, and community forums.

The kNOw began as a project of New America Media, which was the country’s first and largest national collaboration and advocate of 2000 ethnic news organizations. In 2018 The kNOw became a project of Youth Leadership Institute.
