“This is the next generation of leaders for our country …” -John Barry, President and CEO of The Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver
Writing for the Soul Workshop™ was first labeled an Academic Success Program by the Boys & Girls Club Musgrave Unit in Springfield, MO.
Once our volunteers were approved to come in and offer Writing for the Soul Workshop™ to Club members, we began implementing the program as a viable component to the mental health programs already in place. This gave their club members an opportunity to get what is on the inside… out, and to experience writing as therapy. After the first monthly report, Musgrave Unit Director, Jeff Long saw that his members were not only writing, but that they where accessing our curricula as well and learning how to become better writers.
Our program differs from other “writing as therapy” type programs. Participants have the opportunity to become published authors, and earn an income based on a self-created marketing strategy with expert advice like some of the members from the Musgrave Unit that are published in The Bully Diaries. These long term educational & financial opportunities creates a strong desire to continue moving forward, and to keep making positive life choices. Ask for The Bully Diaries at your favorite book store, or purchase it directly from us in our store.
After piloting Writing for the Soul Workshop™ at the Musgrave Unit in Springfield, the city’s mayor had this to say, “Every community needs a program like this.” -Mayor Robert Stephens, City of Springfield
