Two celebratory events will take place simultaneously. The public is invited. Here’s what to expect at each:

Discovery Center, at 3401 Reservoir Dr, Philadelphia, PA 19121, August 25, 4:30-6pm

  • At the Discover Center, Motivos will officially release their new Self-Discovery themed edition and honor the young writers in their Media Mentorship Program who accomplished nationally published author status. Youth will share motivations behind their published stories and showcase their creative work. High school seniors in the program will move into paid apprenticeship positions at the magazine. Each year, 15 youth receive a one-on-one writing coach, weekly journalism training and trips to explore college and career opportunities. They are in the decision-making seats when deciding themes and content for what is now the nation’s largest bilingual magazine with youth-generated content.
  • Business 101 Side Hustler Boot Camp will celebrate accomplishments of summer participants of their 30-day accelerator course designed to help aspiring entrepreneurs channel their ideas, passions, hobbies, and side hustles into viable business projects. Program graduates will receive $200 in start-up funds for their own side hustle or passion project. This course sets them up with the means to run their very own business or side hustle,” Sam Reed noted.
  • Creative Demonstrations (Art, Video, Fashion) and Sustainable Side Hustles produced by Students from the U School’s Agriculture, Food, Natural Resource (AFNR) CTE program will also be on display at the event. Refreshments will be served.

  • At Ride Free, Motivos will officially release their new Self-Discovery themed edition and honor the 14 youth who participated in two Motivos Summer Video Camps and the seven who participated in Motivos Leadership Series held at Centro Nueva Creación this summer.
  • Motivos Video Camp Instructor, Ramses Montes, will showcase the short videos created by youth in the camps and share the importance of such programs in the communities we serve. Video campers received instruction on videography throughout the twice-weekly six-week camp, produced and edited short videos and received a tablet upon completion of the program. Motivos Leadership Series participants went through trainings on team-building, mindfulness, reflection and future-planning in a series of three intense two-hour workshops over the course of the summer.
  • Event attendees will receive a copy of Motivos brand new edition, hear from the student participants and be invited on a tour of the Ride Free facilities that offer free access to entrepreneurial equipment like a heat press to make T-shirts, a market to sell what you create, recording studio and sound engineer services, women’s empowerment zone, green screen and event space.
