Teens who have something to say but feel powerless or angry might express their feelings with destructive behavior. Completing the journal activities gives young people freedom create something that represents a portion of their inner world. The activities reveal creative, engaging ways to take control of their emotions, and the result is a happier, more efficient, and joyful life.
Education in adolescence is often deeply peer-oriented. During the teen years, young people frequently look to their friends to mirror who they are as they develop their self-image. Dream Up Now™ has activities to not only help its readers and workshop participants find friends, but to make a careful selection of friendships with others to improve their own life by sharing positive values and building a satisfying future by finding their unique passion and pursuing it. When a young person dares to share their art, they give others an opportunity to care about them.
By engaging independently with Dream Up Now™ (or in a workshop of 5-15 participants), you can facilitate a breakthrough program that will create a positive and lasting shift in your community.
