This process is essential to the healthy development of our teen mothers, who have been isolated from normal social interaction. A dead end becomes a Street of Dreams!

Using a simple method called "word art," the creative process is used as a healing mechanism. Our students are guided to view their dark past as their greatest artistic asset. They begin to transform feelings of despair and hopelessness into art works and public performance. The performance provides a forum for teen mothers who have been without a voice. Their original creations (book of poetry, music video, performance) provide a profound emotional, informative and cathartic experience for our participants and audience. This process is essential to the healthy development of our teen mothers, who have been isolated from normal social interaction. A dead end becomes a Street of Dreams!
