Our Workshops

OUR CURRICULUM

Our classes provide a safe space for our students to express themselves in a judgement free zone. There are both poetry performances and introspective writing exercises in each class. We lead open discussions, encourage emotional connections and allow reflective time.

  • Forgiveness
  • Student Poetry Slam/Finale 


The sixteen week revisits topics such as:

WHAT IS MY SISTA'S KEEPHER

Our organization focuses on young ladies ages 12 to 21. Established in 2014, we have reached thousands of youth in Wisconsin and beyond using poetry performances and writing exercises to address various traumas, challenges and issues that all too often distract our youth from becoming their best self.  We focus on similarities more than differences. We encourage all of our students to share their stories, find their voice and be heard in a positive way. We offer a way to stay connected through our Incentive Programs which include our Mother & Daughter Pajama Party, Dream Big Spa Day and our F.I.R.E. Awards (Females In Recognition of Excellence).
