Kids' Zone 2016

Kids zone is sponsored by Oakland-based self literacy company, Know Yourself PBC. 

"We believe that the path to understanding self worth is Self Literacy, which we define as a foundational knowledge of anatomy, physiology, psychology and how these three things work together. To this end, we create products that guide young people on the path to being Self Literate that include award winning books, monthly adventures and comics, which are all super-fun and accessible educational materials. "

The kids' zone offers steel pan music class with Harry Best and his youth group, face painting by Amber Arts, a jumpy house, and opportunities to play the beautiful game with MYS coaches and Teen Mentors and camp alumni. Additional offerings added daily leading up to the event.
