I-Glow addresses the high stress levels and hopelessness high risk children and their parents face. Not only do they face common school stressors such as bullying, test anxiety, peer pressure, but also parental unemployment, family financial constraints, cultural and language barriers, community violence, homelessness and in some cases family violence. Without the proper tools many of these children lose their identity and their bright curious innate spirit; they start making wrong choices which can lead to dropping out of school, alcohol and drug abuse, gang involvement, and other forms of evasion.
Offering I Glow Days in schools will bring art that has been taken out of the classrooms and the opportunity to build social emotional skills to empower these children. We are planning three I Glow days for each school we are serving. Help us Glow!
