These workshops will create open and safe environments for participants, and provide them tools to communicate effectively, collaborate, and find power in their own voices.

These workshops will extend the same methods and goals of the youth programming, incorporating healing-centered curriculums to fulfill our program’s mission.

"Before the workshop I didn’t know this girl, but then we made a song, and I found out things I would’ve never known because I would’ve never asked. It felt good because I could look at people a different way. If you just see the shell of someone it’s not who they are, it’s just how you see them.”

A professional writer will guide the students through a survey of writing styles, covering poetry, short stories, journalism, and speechwriting. 

Collaboration with their peers and guidance from their instructor, students will craft their own writings and the class will culminate in a final reading for them to share their work in a safe, accepting environment. 

"I think the overall thing now
is being confident and

being true
to yourself.”
