An annual gathering of current and former foster youth in New Hampshire has a rap music theme this year.
Participants at Thursday’s Youth Voices Summit at New England College in Henniker will attend workshops on topics such as getting a college degree; finding a job; choosing a career; budgeting; self-advocacy; forming healthy relationships; and finding help for substance abuse.
This year’s keynote speaker is Ethan Birch also known as rapper Six 8. He’s been a vocal youth advocate at several national events, including the Future Business Leaders of America State Convention. In addition to providing the keynote address, Ethan will lead an afternoon workshop on positive rap.
The event will also include a listening session led by the Office of the Child Advocate and a youth talent show.
