On Dec 10th, We wrapped up our last workshop with Acer America and Macla’s DMCStudio! Our round table discussion throughout the 4-week Poetry Workshop ranged from a variety of topics from depression, immigration, homelessness, social media to the question “Is the pen mightier than the sword?” It has been an eye-opening experience and we applaud the youth’s bravery for opening up about their personal struggles. It is not an easy task. We thank all the volunteers who have lent their ears and voice to support our youth.

After attending the workshops, we have a few afterthoughts at Chi.

To our local companies, organizations and community:

  • How can we partner and utilize our time and resources to help our youth succeed. How can we grow upon these types of workshops to keep our youth engaged and successful now and into the future?

  • What type of Corporate Social Responsibility programs does your company have and how can you get involved? Does your company offer volunteer hours? If not, propose an idea to your company and partner with a local organization. Together we can make great things happen!

What is great about Acer, is they provide volunteer hours for approved volunteer events during the year! Another great organization they partnered with recently was Toy for Tots and also helping out the fire victims through Napa Valley Community Foundation. We were definitely excited when Acer wanted to partner with Macla’s DMCStudio and also appreciate Acer’s gadgets team for donating new mice and backpacks for Macla’s DMCStudio!

Although the workshop is over, we encourage you to visit, volunteer, take your kids, a friend to join in Macla’s DMCStudio community space!

Let’s keep this conversation going! If you have any questions about this workshop or want to become more involved at Macla’s DMCStudio, feel free to message us at chicreativeagency@gmail.com
