Students learn how to connect and collaborate with community and organizations.
Body awareness and self-empowerment
We help students understand how through movement, individuals can embody and release emotions associated with trauma, such as anger, fear, or sadness.
Social connection and support:
We help students building relationships with peers who share similar experiences or interests can foster a sense of belonging and community, which is crucial for healing from trauma.

How Are Empowering Our Youth
Empower with purpose
Overcoming physical challenges, learning new skills, and achieving personal goals through movement can boost self-confidence and self-esteem. These positive experiences contribute to a sense of mastery and agency, which are vital components of trauma recovery.
Encourage participation in activities that promote socialization, networking, and positive peer relationships. These connections can help reduce isolation, provide a sense of belonging, and offer opportunities for shared experiences and learning.
Culture and Diversity
When individuals are connected to and proud of their cultural heritage, it can contribute to a strong sense of self-esteem. Embracing one's cultural background, traditions, language, and values can foster a sense of belonging and enhance self-worth.
