Art from Ashes

The Phoenix Rising program combines the articulation of events or circumstances in the lives of young people; the opportunity to release emotion retained from those experiences; and guidance that allows youth to use strong, healthy words that encourage an identity based on choice rather than victimization. Our process is group-based and our curriculum is designed to be transformational rather than therapeutic, but the process of writing has historically proven to have a beneficial effect on the healing process. Youth ages 12-24 are invited to attend and are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop.
