3. Healing + Resilience

Speak it out. Expressing your experiences and opinions in a forum where you are seen and celebrated can be a powerful way to experience joy and connection. Get Lit is a non-profit organization that offers several programs for youth to express themselves through spoken word and poetry in a community that cultivates youth voices to thrive.
