View for Youth

VIEW from the Inside
for Junior/Senior High Schools

VIEW from the Inside is an award-winning program with the three-fold goal to empower youth, help to reduce the stigma of mental health issues, and build a sense of community in life’s challenges.

Within the carefully curated safety of the group, led by our accredited art therapists and teachers, mainstream, BIPOC, special needs and/or LGBTQ2S+ students examine who they are as a responsible, caring, self-reliant and contributing member of society. Through a process of self-reflection, critical thinking and creativity, students are able to explore the interplay of  dimensions of health (physical, intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social) and the interplay of these factors in managing well-being. 

VIEW makes solid curriculum links the Career and Life Management Program of Studies as well as embedding Art and Drama concepts.

The innovative 8-week course has participants make a self- portrait- based puppet and present a performative reflection that becomes a platform for them to articulate their understanding of self visually and dramatically.
