BENEFITING: INSIDEOUT WRITERS INC
InsideOUT Writers (IOW) understands the power of the written word. IOW conducts weekly writing classes within the Los Angeles County Juvenile Hall System. The classes, taught by writers, poets, screenwriters, journalists and educators, give incarcerated youth the opportunity to refocus their lives without the influence of peer pressure and build their self-esteem. The young people in juvenile hall are able to tell their stories, reflect on the past, and decide how they will write the next chapter of their lives.
