What’s a FamBam?

fam·i·ly [fam-uh-lee, fam-lee] noun   +    bam [bam] noun, verb   =  Fam·Bam
1. a night of sharing, storytelling, eating and laughter with old and new friends.
ex. I can’t wait to go to the fambam tonight so I can eat til I burst and laugh til I cry!
2. to bring communities together to celebrate the accomplishments of youth organizers with families, community and SYPP supporters.
ex. I’m glad we fambam’d last night. I learned so much about everyone there!

No auction this year? What makes this different? 

  • Instead of an emphasis on items and purchases, the focus is on fun and connection between supporters, youth, and their families.
  • A creative and unique celebration of how all generations contribute to social change, from our ancestors, to our supporters and alumni, to our current members.
  • More diverse and in-depth sharing about who SYPP is and why our work matters.

I want to be there! What do I need to know?

  • A delicious dinner is provided and you should be prepared to run for our famously fun dessert dash.
  • Come with a spirit of grassroots support for a worthy organization empowering youth in Seattle to fight for social justice. There will be a variety of ways to donate to SYPP and demonstrate support for our work.
  • Tickets are $40 for adults, and $20 for youth

SYPP Youth Blog: Say It! Story Telling as Organizing

April 1, 2010

Check out this amazing new(ish) blog!

About Say It!

Say It!: Story-telling as Organizing is a weblog featuring the work, thoughts, research, and voices of 15 youth organizers at Seattle Young People’s Project who are listening to the struggles, realities, and experiences of youth communities in Seattle and sharing their stories with you.

For us, story-telling is political. Every story raises young people’s voices, sheds light on their most pressing issues, and inspires visions and strategies for local social change. These stories are political beginnings of the political change we want to make in our homes, neighborhoods, communities, schools, and worlds.

Read on. Share your thoughts (yes, that means write a comment)! And, join the struggle.

Pull out your calendars…
