We're happy to be collaborating with our community partners at Youth Off The Streets to run term-long creative writing workshops throughout 2018.
In these workshops, young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness will have opportunities to unleash their creativity and discover the joy and satisfaction of writing, whether collaborative stories, protest poetry, or something else entirely.
Our teen students will be supported by the same volunteers each week, in a fun, positive, creative environment. With storyteller guidance, students will be encouraged to express themselves, building trust in their own experiences. They’ll will be empowered to meaningfully re-engage in their education with confidence and pride.
At the conclusion of the program, students will graduate with a reading of their work, and will take home a published copy of their finished writing to keep as a lasting record of their achievement.
This program has been made possible thanks to the support of the Coca-Cola Australia Foundation.
