Testimonial from Customer in Africa:
“The youth have been built up academically and more so socially when they have the opportunity to express themselves in the stories. They also enjoy coming together and belonging to a productive group other than be out there in the streets where they face being introduced into gangs. The Writing for the Soul Workshop program has been very productive, and we look forward to be able to participate more in the next year. We cannot fail to thank you for the money you send to us from the sale of the Pieces of Me series, where our stories are published. The money is used to buy utilities for our workshops plus helping out the needy members of our group.” –Joseph Mwaura, GPO Kenya
Our Program Philosophy
The success of your organization to deliver Writing for the Soul Workshop™ depends on your organization’s ability to recreate the right culture and environment. It is important that everyone – from Directors, to Facilitators to Mentors to other volunteers – embrace and understand our program culture and philosophy.
Our core program philosophy is based on the fact that powerful emotions have a powerful voice; and that when we get what is on the inside out, we make amazing breakthroughs in gaining control of those feelings. Once we control those emotions, we can harness their power.
As a Mentor, Facilitator or Director, a successful workshop is dependent on your ability to show participants the power they get from letting what is on the inside …out.
After harnessing this power, we then empower participants with an array of tools and resources. Our Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Curriculum walks participants through an entirely new set of skills, from editing to marketing to sales skills, participants learn about writing and publishing; and at the same time, start making forward thinking choices, rejecting bad habits, and changing their behavior based on a different perspective for the future.
Depending on your participants, this shift in thinking and behavior can mean reversing or avoiding things like poor school performance, behavioral issues in school or at home, and potential criminal activities.
While it may seem incredible that a writing workshop can impact behavior so dramatically, Writing for the Soul Workshop™ is more than just a writing workshop, it is an opportunity for individuals to see a different perspective, to interact with others that truly care about them and their story, and to know that telling their story opens up new opportunities. That is why maintaining the culture and philosophy of Writing for the Soul Workshop™ is so important – it is the culture of each workshop, as shown through the actions of every Mentor, Facilitator and Director that produces these amazing results, not just the curriculum.
