On Saturday April 1st, BBBSMC hosted author, poet and community builder Kevin Coval for a performance workshop with our matches. Through creative creation and performance in a safe space, the workshop empowered Littles to harness tools for self-expression, thus increasing self-esteem and confidence.

Kevin Coval is a talented teaching artist from Young Chicago Authors (YCA), an organization that transforms the lives of young people by cultivating their voices through writing, publication and performance education. Matches who registered for the workshop received a complimentary pair of tickets to the LOUDER THAN A BOMB (LTAB) semi-finals on Sunday, March 12. LTAB is YCA’s signature annual event that hosts 1,000+ youth poets from all over Chicago for a month of Olympic-style poetry bouts and workshops where they perform original solo and group poems in a tournament-style competition.
