We hope to establish our own Council to meet weekly throughout the summer to develop Open Doors into the kind of space teens in our area both want and need.Their video below left us with goosebumps, and we realized Open Doors had the opportunity to serve teens in ways we had yet to fully realize.So we visited the Neutral Zone, and witnessed their Youth-Driven Spaces model in action.We saw the incredible and impressive things the teens there are up to, and their pre-established model inspired us to develop a similar culture that would work for our own teen members.We spent the next few weeks working alongside our current teens to devise a plan for the future of Open Doors. We believe these changes will benefit the Grand Rapids community in ways heretofore unimaginable.They’re a group of motivated and talented kids, and they know what they’re good at and what they enjoy.These are things that we, as a staff, know and accept, but sometimes we just seem to forget. Not because we had it right, but because the teens had it right. We are now proud to announce the next phase of Open Doors’ existence: our absorption into The Geek Group. In our last blog post this summer, “The Future of Open Doors,” Maddie and I detailed our two-year progression from an upstart homeschool resource center to a Youth-Driven Space.Our current members decided they would like to spend these casual meetings around campfires, trekking through the forest, and otherwise adventurously traipsing.Are you or a teen you know interested in joining us on our adventures to create an awesome space for Grand Rapids teens? Contact our Program Director, Jacob Sabourin, for more information or to get involved.
