Street Poets, Inc.

mission:

Our mission is: to inspire at-risk youth in the juvenile detention facilities, schools and streets of Los Angeles County to discover and develop their voices as writers, artists and human beings; to empower these young people to use the skills and increased self-awareness engendered through the arts to transcend self-destructive lifestyles; and to create a healing community that unites different racial, ethnic and socioeconomic segments of our city around the transformational power of the creative process.
