Since my early experience as a Peace Corps Volunteer, I have been drawn to opportunities to empower others with skills and resources that are sorely needed in communities.
I was delighted when members of Austin Clubhouse (a non-profit, member-based organization made up of people living with mental health challenges) stepped up to become Peer Facilitators of Poetry as a Tool for Wellness.
It’s an honor to work beside them and realize our vision of expanding this program so that more people have access to the healing power of poetry.
