Arts As Healing & Activism

Youth Poet Laureate

In partnership with the National Youth Poet Laureate program, VOICES works with local youth poets who represent the best of our community’s literary excellence and civic leadership to create opportunities and resources to use their voices to inspire change. The National YPL is supported by the Academy of American poets, Poetry Society of America, The Library of Congress, The National Endowment for the Arts, The National Parks Service, Cave Canem, and many more.

After/In-School Arts Programs

Offers students an in-depth look at themselves and communities through art. It challenges them to build confidence, explore social justice topics, discover new pro-social activities, and tap into their untold stories and share them in a safe space. Educators benefit from our state-standard-aligned curriculum as a complement to daily instruction.
