Joy&theHood Application Form
Joy&theHood Youth Wellness Collective has recently been awarded grant funding from the Youth Healing Project. With the grant funds, Joy&theHood is looking for six Seattle high schoolers that identify as a person of color (BIPOC) to join our Peace2theYouth program. Youth will be mentored by BIPOC adults who will teach them about creative expression, mindfulness, yoga, and other helpful tools to help them develop their own wellness practice. We will also have workshops about self-love, how to develop healthy coping skills, and more!
The Peace2theYouth pilot program will run for twelve weeks and meet twice a week. Dates are still tentative, but the program expects to start in January 2023.
The mentors at Joy&theHood are not mental health professionals. Instead, we are young adults who have battled and are healing our own mental health issues. We are looking to foster a safe community where vulnerability, empathy, and compassion are nurtured.
All youth selected will receive a free t-shirt, yoga mat, and more!
