With the help of our friends at Fir Ridge Alternative High School, MYP is now hosting summer breakdance sessions there. These sessions are open anyone interested in breakdancing and will run through the remainder of this summer from noon to 1:30pm every Friday. We are deeply appreciative of the support of those at Fir Ridge and we look forward to our partnership this upcoming year with additional programs like Rap / Songwriting, Poetry, Tutoring and an Entrepreneurship Course. More to come...
Hi MYP friends and family. I want to let you know about an awesome event going down this Thursday in NW Portland's Pearl District. Our friends at the PREM Group will be hosting a fundraiser for Morpheus Youth Project from 5:30 - 9pm. There will be art work, music and drinks. This is a great opportunity to get out and have some fun, while supporting a great cause! I hope to see you there!
Check out KBOO's recent radio program featuring Morpheus Youth Project on Prison Pipeline. Producer Stephanie Guy focuses on the work being done at MacLaren Youth Corrections in Carlos Chavez' Radio Journalism Class. This is an ongoing workshop that is hosted on Friday nights to youth service time there. Danny Gonzalez is interviewed on his experiences in this class and what it meant for him. He was one of the students who was involved in this class from the get go and who continued on through his time at MacLaren. He is now released and doing well for himself and MYP's Radio Journalism Group is now certifying youth in different areas of audio recording and production through its partnership with KBOO Community Radio and Hope Partnership (Janis Youth Programs).

It's going to be hot and we're going to have lots of MYP merchandise and gift packages to auction off!
We'll have another great concert following in November that will be just as awesome, so stay posted for info on that one.
In the meantime, we've kicked off our coinciding Indiegogo campaign which overlaps both concerts for those who live outside of Portland and want to show support or for those who make it to the show and didn't get enough merchandise.
