Hopeworks youth have been very visible this month, influencing communities including and beyond their own!

Hopeworks Web intern, Adri had the opportunity to deliver a powerful presentation in Philadelphia, speaking at the uncovering of Mural Arts latest project, which many Hopeworks youth got to be apart of. They did a great job speaking about the process of creating the mural and connecting the experience to art itself.

GIS Intern, Zora also networked and shared her experiences as she presented for the Arbor Brothers in Manhattan, NY

When asked about her presentation, she shared: 

“It was an awesome experience, it was my first time speaking at an event. I always had a fear of public speaking, but the Arbor Brothers and guests showed a warm welcome and were very supportive. Also, a great thanks to Hopeworks for the opportunity, and all their support and encouragement as well.”

Then our Youth Healing Team blew the audience away with an awesome keynote presentation at Walsh University, presenting at the "Mental Health & Addiction: Breaking the Stigma 2019" conference.

Youth Healing team supervisor, Charlene recalls:

"This experience was amazing! Not only was my first flight experience a great one, but it felt great to have the opportunity to share our knowledge on trauma-informed practices in front of a number of professionals in the mental health field, which made this experience even more special. It was also great having the opportunity to talk to a U.S. Senator, and someone who is famous in the mental health community, Wendy Ellis. If I had the opportunity to do this again, I definitely would!" -Charlene
