Now it is time for you to reflect on and apply what you have learned in this module. Ruth Nicole Brown (2009) sates,
“Although SOLHOT looks to outsiders like a ‘program,’ meaning that we meet for a specific time in a particular space, it is not. Although SOLHOT looks to outsiders like ‘mentoring,’ meaning that we work with Black women and girls, it is not. Although SOLHOT looks to outsiders like ‘girl empowerment,’ meaning that it is a positive gender-specific (or exclusionary) space, it is not (p. 26).”
In the quote, she mentions three things SOLHOT is not, it is not a “program”, “mentoring”, or “girl empowerment.” Brown (2009), goes on to articulate the idea of power not programs, and take a critical stance about youth empowerment as a model of working on youth which often fails youth.
Responding to the quote and the reading, provide a reflection about SOLHOT.
– In your reflection:
Describe SOLHOT? What is it and why does it exist?
Define the concept of power not programs. Identify why the idea of youth empowerment is often times flawed and provide one example of how youth programs fail to empower youth.
Identify and provide two examples that demonstrates the idea of power not programs, one must come from the chapter and show how SOLHOT shifts power for Black girls rather than seeking to empower them
