Participants in Voices UnBroken workshops develop self-expression skills through creative writing and discussion exercises, which enables them to constructively communicate in situations where they previously would not have had the confidence to speak up.  They also learn that their voices have the power to change people's perceptions about them, in particular the adults who work with them, including counselors, social workers, corrections officers and other site staff.  

 

More specifically, participants in Voices UnBroken workshops improve:

 

  • Comfort with their ability to speak in public

  • Their ability to engage in creative self expression

  • Their ability to positively interpret challenges and develop a hopeful future orientation

  • Their willingness to engage in other essential services (counseling, education, etc.)

  • Confidence in their voice as a vehicle for change in their own lives and in the communities they come from, live in, or will return to.
