Research continues to confirm that to fully develop the attitude, knowledge and
skills youth need to make good choices, resist negative peer pressures, and to succeed in life, they need a core set of services, supports, and opportunities. Here are five ways that our writing program impact, enhance and strengthen the capacity of our participants:

  1. Opportunities for caring, consistent relationships with responsible adult mentors in their community.
  2. Opportunities for positive social and recreational activities with peers and
    family.
  3. Opportunities to make positive contributions to their family, their
    neighborhood, and the community and to feel valued for their contribution.
  4. Opportunities to learn and test new skills through participation in a wide range
    of social, cultural, educational, service, and employability activities.
  5. Opportunities to assist in the design and implementation of programs and
    services in which they participate.
