Solution

Through student-artist interactions within the context of our programs, Turning Table will guide youth in developing the confidence necessary to overcome the social and emotional challenges they face in their communities. We have found that fostering youth and children's ability to confidently perform new skills within positive, community-based settings expands their vision of possibility offering broader and more meaningful life choices.
