Power Through Poetry
 

In 1996 the Academy of American Poets started National Poetry Month for the month of April. During the month schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets throughout the United States band together to celebrate poetry and it’s vital place in American culture. Thousands of organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops and other events.

New Breed Of Youth will celebrate with a Poetry Slam. A poetry slam is a competition at which poets read or recite original work. These performances are then judged on a numeric scale by previously selected members of the audience.

Our Poetry Slam will give our Young Men a chance to tell their story in their own words. This will be on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 6 p.m. at The Rock Full Gospel Church. Tickets to come support our cadets are $5 at the door.

 

Our cadets have been working very hard in the our New B.O.Y. studio and at the Central Library with our Life Coaches prepare for this event.

Every participant will receive a certificate and the top 3 winners will receive cash prizes.
