Mission: By utilizing the talents of our community, we shall empower people of all ages to use their own gifts to make our youth stronger and our elders more relevant. Using the power of mentoring and innovative modalities of the 21st Century, we shall demonstrate the power of one person to effect positive change and the potential that working together promises.
Results: We have had two programs running to date:
The Artist Within
Writing as Legacy
It Just Takes 1 offers mentoring/art groups and writing classes for all ages. The group I would like to speak about here is: The Artist Within, this group is currently enrolling for teen girls. Girls get together and use art as a medium of self discovery. They learn to trust them selves more, work out their relationships with others all while enjoying the process of art. The mentors love children, are heartfelt volunteers, create a safe place that encourages personal growth.
