Recipes for Belonging: Communities rooted in the Hudson Valley Region is an audio segment featured on WGXC highlighting and honoring spaces where belonging has been cultivated through reflections, visions, implemented structures, and daily interactions. Recipes for Belonging aims to highlight how these networks have grown into what they are today by sharing what it feels like to be inside of them with the hope to inspire others in their own pursuit for belonging.

Recipes for Belonging’s first segment looks at Kite’s Nest, a center for liberatory education in Hudson, NY. Kite’s Nest’s programming is meant for young people to learn how to bring about personal transformation, social connection, healing, and systemic change through experiential education, the arts, meaningful job training, and civic action as tools for building community power.
