Real Talk: Real Talk is a youth-led forum for discussing the issues that are most important to teens. We meet two Mondays a month from 6-8 in the Waltham Public Library Teen Room. Each event is planned, promoted, and executed by teen leaders with help from our Teen Specialist. In exchange for their work, our teen leaders receive training, support, work history, and a stipend. Real Talk is made possible through the generosity of the Library Initiative for Teens and Tweens (LITT), a project of the Rhyme and Reason Fund at the Boston Foundation.
For complete details about Real Talk, read more HERE.
Girls Who Code: The Girls Who Code club teaches girls 12-18 with any level of coding experience how coding skills can help them pursue their passion, whatever it is. Our experienced instructors help girls explore storytelling, illustration, gaming, music production, and more through a variety of coding technologies. But it's always more club than class!

Sponsor: Waltham Group (Brandeis University organization) and Boston College
SSLS is a conference where students from various different schools, universities, and nonprofit organizations from Waltham and beyond hold roundtable discussions and presentations, on issues of sustainability and environmentalism. It gives students the opportunity to share with and learn from each other, building inspiration and ideas for grassroots change. They will learn how to better communicate on these issues with their peers, and raise awareness in the wider local community.
We hope that attendees will be able to apply what they learn to helping their school and helping Waltham. This is a valuable opportunity for WHS students, and we hope many are able to attend.
