Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Voices UnBroken is a Bronx-based non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing under-heard members of the community-primarily youth, ages 12-24-with the tools and opportunity for creative self-expression. Through high quality creative writing workshops in juvenile justice facilities, group homes, residential treatment facilities, jails, and various other alternative settings, Voices UnBroken nurtures the inherent need in all people to tell their stories and be heard. It is our belief that this telling of stories and sharing of dreams leads to individual and community growth.
Youth participants in Voices UnBroken workshops improve: ability and comfort speaking in public, ability to engage in creative self expression, ability to positively interpret challenges and develop a hopeful future orientation, willingness to engage in other essential services (counseling, education, etc.), confidence in their voice as a vehicle for change in their own lives and in the communities they come from, live in, or will return to.
Since our founding on Rikers Island in 2000, Voices UnBroken is committed to meeting the changing needs of youth in the juvenile justice system by being present in spaces where art programming could have a positive impact and yet isn’t often available.
