Last Friday Lyndale had its second session of programming with LNA’s Latinas de Lyndale en Liderazgo (LLL) program. Through the LLL program Latina women in the Lyndale neighborhood learn community organizing skills through taking action on a community issue. Since its inception last year, Youth Farm has provided quality programming to the women’s children during program sessions.
The group of us had a blast together on Friday night. We played tag at Painter Park, picked up trash around the neighborhood while flyering for a new ESL program, and celebrated Dia de Los Muertos with a potluck and frosting our own colorful sugar cookies.
The program is a great partnership between LNA and Youth Farm and is another example of how we’re building relationships across our hood. At the end of the three and a half hour program all the kids were talking about wanting to come back the next day!
