Youth Leadership Team

Rewriting our world.

Deep’s Youth Leadership Team hosts two pathways, the Slam Team and the Action Research Team (ART), which are made up of young people who identify strongly as creative writers, are passionate about engaging with hearts and minds in some of Savannah’s and our nation’s most challenging topics, and are committed as experts, in their own right, to helping support and improve Deep Center.

Both teams meet regularly to engage in their respective programs, as well as to provide feedback to Deep staff, facilitate community events, and write.

The Slam Team and ART also go on periodic leadership trips around the region and the nation to share their and Deep’s work, engage in dialogue about culture and the critical issues facing our communities locally and nationwide, perform, and learn from national peers.
