Visionaries Share Their Stories
The Find Your Voice writing class, offered in partnership with Sacramento nonprofit 916 Ink, is all about expression, self-discovery and storytelling through the written word. Recently, we asked our Find Your Voice students to lend their voices in a different way – on video! In order to showcase all of the incredible things that the class offers, some of our middle school and high school members, teachers and even parents sat down on camera to share their experiences with the class and with Visions. Check out the video below:
“This class taught me it’s not going to be perfect but you’ve just got to try it and keep doing it and you’re going to get better at it.” – Isabella, Visions Find Your Voice Student
“Everyone is a writer when given a safe environment to express themselves.” – Crystal, Visions Teacher & Middle School Class Coordinator
Thank you Ashley, Isabella, Grace, Gabby, Abigail, Jaeda, Christina, Chad and Crystal for sharing your experiences!
We are so proud of our Visionaries for sharing their stories in so many different ways every single day. To learn more, visit the Find Your Voice page here.
About Find Your Voice
This class uses writing to take students in grades 6-12 on a journey of creativity and self-discovery. Students gain new confidence and discover the joy of writing. We proudly partner with Sacramento nonprofit, 916 Ink, to offer this class to our students. Students do not need to consider themselves a “writer” to sign up. The goal is to provide a creative and collaborative environment in which any student can discover their potential as a writer. The cost of this class is covered by your student budget.
