10WEEK VIRTUAL CREATIVE WRITING PROGRAM

Providing middle and high school aged students with a safe space to develop social emotional skills through creative arts

n a time where so much has been taken away from so many, it is essential that we create spaces to give back to those who need it the most. This generation is one of the most creative and intelligent generations 

More than nine in 10 Gen Z adults (91 percent) said they have experienced at least one phy

ever, yet they are also the least likely of all generations to report having good or satisfactory mental health, according to the American Psychological Association. Despite these findings, today’s youth are already the most creative and entrepreneurial. So, to truly serve them we must both meet them both where they are and provide them with what they need.

 

The Youth Writer’s Camp will utilize the methodology of Arts-Based Research (ABR), which has created new ways of investigating and representing the human experience. The fundamental element of ABR is that the speaking subject becomes central in the research text. In addition, this approach is appreciated because it allows the audience to experience the emotional impact of the work.

 

Our program provides continuous opportunities 
for healthy emotional expression within a safe and supportive community. Our goal is to not only help young people cope through writing, but also to motivate them to develop their own streams of revenue.

speaker, poet, author, and minister. Burdened by the brokenness and mistreatment of this disenfranchised generation, Brandon decided to mesh creativity and cultural engagement to uplift and capture the creative gifts of this present age, hence Brandon founded Poetically Adorned Apparel and When Thunder Speaks, LLC.

Growing up in an environment that constantly stifled his voice, Brandon personally understands the effects of repressing emotions, avoiding vulnerability, and devaluing self. Along the journey, Brandon found healing in utilizing creative outlets that gave voice to his pain and reality. He has made it his life mission to create safe spaces for others.
