Summer Intensive

A 5-week holistic program centering the authentic self and personal voice, through expressive writing, collaborative creations, and communal cooking.  Middle school is a hard time to feel security in self and confidence among peers.  That's why we created the Summer Intensive, to strengthen confidence and personal voice, as well as collective collaboration and acceptance. The Summer Intensive

“she crew is life. I feel like I can take on the world now.”
