Project Lit uses poetry, spoken word and hip hop to promote literacy & activate social and emotional learning with young and emerging adults.
Project Lit workshops create a brave space that allows students to embrace discomfort while exploring their emotions, thoughts, and feelings, as well as engaging others with the same process. Expression is about an openness to reveal oneself completely, and if used effectively, can be a vehicle to expand worldviews.
In addition, expression is a great tool to develop critical life skills. The goal is not necessarily that students become professional poets, but instead that they find their unique voice and learn what it takes to manage the responsibility of having that voice amplified for the world to witness.
