A Different Point of View Hosts Meeting of Santa Barbara Teen Coalition

A Different Point of View, a nonprofit charity that uses flight lessons as launching pads to help change the course of history for youth who are at risk of losing their way, hosted the bimonthly meeting of the Santa Barbara Teen Coalition at the Santa Barbara Airport’s Visitor’s Center.

The Santa Barbara Teen Coalition is a coalition representing about 45 nonprofit organizations and programs in the Santa Barbara community who serve specifically teens, but youth in general.

The members of the coalition meet bimonthly to exchange ideas and program activities to enhance how local youth are served.

The SBTC’s mission is to network and leverage resources to improve and enhance the healthy lifestyle of teens. The coalition recently received a grant from the Orfalea Foundation, and this month’s meeting focused on how youth service agencies can create programs and activities that teens can mirror for healthy lifestyles.

A Different Point of View’s documentary, featuring several youth who have been given the opportunity to see their world from a different point of view, was shown during the luncheon.

Special thanks to the Santa Barbara Airport and Silvergreens Restaurant.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
