Get Woke is not only a book but a resource that combines youth empowerment and education together. It is what we are calling a "Youth Sustainability Manual." It is a tool for youth, families, and organizations to explore necessary information from realistic, spiritual, and philosophical points of view, to present deep conversations in a unique way amongst youth and young adults. The phrase Get Woke is a call to action for not only youth but adults, community, and society to act upon the current mandate screaming loudly.
We are in a time of "re": A time to replenish, redefine, rebuild, and reestablish youth, starting with youth culture. We will be discussing the deeper meanings of life with youth culture, such as maturation, breaking barriers, spirituality, and sustenance in a more profound yet relatable way.
Where does the phrase Get Woke come from?
Get Woke is a spinoff of the term Stay Woke, which, according to Wikipedia, is an African American vernacular in English expression, which refers to continuing awareness of social issues. However, this book's objective is to help youth to Get Woke!
The term represents the objective of the I Am A Vessel Youth Movement to create a platform that educates youth on the unseen things affecting them because of societal changes, technology, social media, and losing human intimacy. Being woke means that one is aware and alert. To be alert is defined as being mentally perceptive and responsive, alive to what is going on. Perhaps we can conclude that not being alert on some level implies one is not living to their fullest potential. We live in such an action- packed society. Being alert is a necessity for survival! This text provides the culture with structure and strategy which includes language, attitude, and mindset for survival in today's world.

Written by I Am A Vessel
Releasing November 2020
Get Woke is a resource that combines youth empowerment and education together. We discuss important topics during this book from realistic, spiritual, and philosophical points of view, to present deep conversations uniquely. It is a crash course of complex topics in hopes of expanding the mindsets of youth. A fresh dose of reality to raise a higher consciousness amongst youth to mobilize them and reshape their own culture.
The key to the ascension of youth is helping them understand the changes happening in and outside of them as they develop during a time when so much about our world is changing! Youth must recognize and nourish not only their cardinal selves but it's time for teens to be more responsible for their spiritual selves, which is the true essence of who they are!
Youth are being cultivated during times of major technological, social, political, and economic change; therefore, we must empower and prepare them for this modern era. Catch up to their quickly advancing minds and stabilize them. This book is a necessary awakening for youth and young adults.
It is the I Am A Vessel Youth Movement's hope that by empowering youth on a new level of self- awareness, we can help them all to Get Woke.
