Voicing Our Issues and Concerns through Expression of Self
Utilizing art as a means of self-expression, allows for issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality to be discussed freely and questioned.
Youth learn to utilize positive outlets for feelings of anger, aggression, revenge, loss, and hurt. According to the Administration on Children, Youth and Families, youth have a greater chance of overcoming negative events if they have the following:
- A sense of purpose
- Positive care givers
- Supportive teachers & staff
Make an Impact
As a 501c3 organization, V.O.I.C.E.S. Corp. is always looking for volunteers and teaching artists for our programs that can help develop and shape our participants. This process of youth development requires an open mind and the need to understand from the youth’s point of view how best to reach, serve, and work with them. We offer an innovative way for our communities to nurture and enlighten youth, as well as create an environment for success.
