About the Workshop: These times can be intense for young people and can feel overwhelming. Even though we’re of different generations we want you to know that your voices are important and that you can help to make the world you want to see. In this workshop, held on Indigenous People’s Day/Columbus Day, we will brainstorm on positive change, think about how we can affect our world locally and globally, and use creative visualization/and creative writing to encourage a caring world for everyone. We will also think about how we can help teens present themselves with confidence to use their voices well, speak their truths while caring for themselves and others. 

This is an ambitious yet sensitive workshop for engaged, thoughtful, caring active young people. Please come if you are ready to begin making this world a better place.
