Adventure Risk Challenge Public Poetry reading

On Wednesday, July 28, Adventure Risk Challenge invites you to its Seventh Annual Public Poetry Reading. Itand#8217;s a celebration of a group of extraordinary teens participating in the ARC 40-day Leadership and Literacy immersion program this summer. Please join ARC for a moving evening listening to their observations of nature, perceptions of self-identity, and inquiry about family and community. The Poetry Reading takes place from 7-9 p.m. at the Cedar House Sports Hotel in Truckee. The event is sponsored by Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation and Cedar House Sport Hotel. ARC participants will share poems they have developed over the course of the program. Their poems are raw and insightful, and for many of these English Language Learners, this is not only the first time they have written pieces in English, but the first opportunity to share their emotions this deeply, and in a public forum. Members of ARC’s Advisory Council and ARC Director Jen Gurecki will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about the program and will be happy to connect you with others who are passionate about our local youth. We look forward to spending this evening with you and supporting local and regional youth!
