Canaan is the annual crossover ceremony after one full year of involvement with Young Harlem, Inc. Each group that crosses over is known as a “Generation.” Canaan is an opportunity for the Generation to re-present themselves to the world. It’s an opportunity to show their parents, peers, teachers and themselves the outcome of Holding On to Positive Expectations, instead of giving up and letting go. Two months prior to Canaan, the premiering Generation will undergo intense workshops, activities and sessions in preparation for the event. Canaan is the experience where one Generation uses the tools instilled in them, to give Hope to the Next Generation.
