The Naked and Unashamed Youth Series promotes reading and provides a forum for students to read a selected featured story and openly discuss chosen topics in a comfortable nonjudgmental setting. Stories are written and geared towards subjects relatable to youth and specific to the challenges they may encounter. The forum allows youth the opportunity to formulate and share opinions and ideas in an environment which fosters open, engaging and respectful dialogue. The sharing of opinions and ideas in this kind of forum will assist in teaching opinion formulation, effective communication, social skills, public speaking skills, listening skills, cognitive reasoning skills and the art of respectful disagreement in a safe and positive environment. The NaU Youth series is held at various schools throughout the DC metropolitan area. If your interested in booking a session at your school, please submit your request via the contact page.
