Odindi Youth Action Village in partnership with Healthy Together West Willow and The New West Willow Neighborhood Association came together to bring a group of elders and youth to discuss creating a stronger West Willow. Through informal and formal discussions there has been a constant identification of misunderstanding and distrust between our elders and youth within the West Willow community. We aim to use storytelling as a tool to bridge the generational gap to create a space of reciprocity of knowledge and history.
Through storytelling, we aim to shed light on a common community issue that both elders and youth in West Willow resonate with. Once that shared community issue is identified we will collectively educate ourselves, mobilize and take action in addressing our shared community concern.
