The Youth Healing Justice Network

What we believe

The Youth Healing Justice Network is dedicated to building a culture of mind, body and well-being practice for black, indigenous and youth of color and the adults in their lives, and to building and nurturing connections and avenues for collaboration between local Healing Arts Practitioners of color and youth of color and supporting organizations. One example of our current work is the founding of the Healer in Residence Program, currently in its first year at Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis.

MEHUBMN was created as part of the Connect with ME Seed Grant project has, and and continues to work with youth teams of creators, innovators and leaders. The work is for, by, and with youth from our communities, funded by a generous grant from the Catalyst Initiative.

Highlights of the Connect with ME Project; Seed project of the Youth Healing Justice Network:

  • Our Logo and website was designed by a team of High School summer interns at Reve Academy
  • The videos were filmed and edited by youth videographers from Saint Paul Neighborhood Network (SPNN), and by Destiny Roberts, a young artepreneur from St. Paul.
  • Video tools and Connect with ME card deck & posters feature school age children of color, and are being edited and designed by a youth videographer and youth graphic designer. These are in production now.
