Lifting Voices’ workshops create ongoing conversations with young people in under-served neighborhoods. Workshops foster nurturing relationships, creative expression, and smart thinking.
Our workshops consist of two parts. First, there is the writing workshop. Second, there is the workshop marketplace.
The writing workshops help grow critical thinking skills through long-term writing projects. The workshop marketplaces are places of exchange where young people “sell” their projects to community members for a “fee,” which is either a donation to our scholarship program or a contribution of volunteer time.
By pursuing this two-step program, we help grow thinking skills and ensure there is a long-term community interest in our young people’s well being.
