In this season and in this generation, we are losing our young children to suicide for reasons far deeper than mental illness. We are beginning with young girls because societal pressures have created standards for how they live, look, speak, and seek that are impossible to live up to. This program teaches them to recognize that they are valuable, and they have a purpose. Now is the time because we must save our kids. We must provide them with creative and innovative outlets to express themselves. Participants will go on a variety of field trips, outings, and they will be exposed to art, culture, music and experiences that will serve as a creative outlet as well. Participants will receive meaningful and thoughtful gifts that support their individual growth and progress.
