San Francisco, CA - The Beat Within

This summer, I was privileged to work with The Beat Within, a non-profit organization that facilitates the publication of writings and artworks produced by incarcerated youth and adults in the form of a weekly newsletter. The Beat Within counters trends in juvenile delinquency by promoting literacy and self-expression among incarcerated youth in various detention centers nationwide by providing a safe writing environment for expression, conversation, and writing. While interning with The Beat Within, I collaborated with youth in an expressionistic literacy project to aid in creative expression, literacy, and writing composition. I also took an administrative role while working with the organization to edit and publish these weekly publications. The goal of my project was to increase capabilities in literacy and self-expression, foster healthy relationships, and build confidence for incarcerated youth in California.
