Telling It staff members are committed to ensuring that our youth know that their lives and safety matter. Our virtual programming goals are two-fold:

  1. In collaboration with our community stakeholders, local artists and most importantly the youth themselves, our rigorously trained Telling It team supports youth in their communities by co-creating a healing environment in which youth can name their hurts and address barriers to their success. 
  2. Using the expressive arts, Telling It offers opportunities for youth that
    • practice social emotional skills
    • practice soft skills that are essential for effective social interaction
    • build cognitive skills
    • identify obstacles
    • stimulate writing and literacy skills
