Instead of merely being a spectator, the youth in this program are invited to actively participate in a performance of Freedom Song. They will have the opportunity to role-play with a script on a set stage and confront certain issues they have never had to deal with before in a way that is both personal and profound.
Our goal for this workshop is to increase positive attitudes and positive social behavior among today’s youth, while reducing substance abuse, and emotional distress. By actually assuming the roles in Freedom Song, kids have the opportunity to connect to their emotions in a more insightful way than is possible by simply being an audience member. This experience leads to an open and honest discussion about addiction.
