BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Through the power of spoken word, the Boston Project Ministries on Elmhurst Street is giving Boston area youth the opportunity to showcase and develop skills during an open mic night Thursday.
WBZ's James Rojas spoke to Youth Program Manager Ahna Kielar, who says the open mic night is a great chance for young artists to hone their public speaking skills.
"It takes a lot, even for some people where its their art. To get up there and be your authentic self, is a really big moment for a lot of young people," Kielar said.
The BPM invites participants aged 13 to 21 to come out to the event, and encourages them to speak on what they're most proud of. The goal of the event is to share stories and art forms while developing confidence in Boston's youth.
