The writing project serves as a complement to the yoga and mindfulness programs offered by Shanthi Project to at-risk youth. It gives interested boys and girls the opportunity to read, write, and share poetry, as well as to have an online presence to give voice to their feelings, ideas, and personal stories.
"People who write poetry after trauma can learn to see themselves with pride, as individuals who have had difficult experiences--gaining a perspective beyond feelings of hurt, defectiveness, shame, and a sense of personal responsibility." --Writing with At-Risk Youth by Richard Gold
