Social Justice is Positive Mental Health
Arts for social justice camp in Bronx, NYC
Dear Change Growers,
Thank you so much for your continued support in TYCL's creative arts for positive mental health and social justice programs. We are excited to update you on the new step towards exploring youth mental health in social justice lens.
TYCL International co-created a five-day learning module for a youth creative arts camp for social justice. The curriculum allows participants to explore and express intersections of personal identities, social justice, and mental health.
TYCL International collaborated with Circle of Dreams, a family enrichment center located in the Bronx, New York City to provide a safe, participatory, and inclusive space for young people to learn, reflect, connect, and express themselves in the area of social justice and mental health through creative artworks.
There were 20 active youth participants in the summer camp. Three amazing local creative art educators facilitated and executed the curriculum in a joyful learning environment. It was a mutual learning experience for the youth as well as for the facilitators. We have been able to act locally because of your continuous support. We are in the process of developing an e-learning program to expand the creative arts for social justice programs for youth beyond borders.
We will keep you updated on the further progress of the e-learning program for social justice. Until then, please feel free to use/share our creative arts for a positive mental health e-learning program.
Thank you once again,
Identity and youth mental health discussion
