HALO Children Learn to Express Emotions Through Poetry

Children at the Kansas City Learning Center individually presented the poems they wrote at HALO’s recent Spoken Word workshop. Volunteers from the Kansas City Art Institute presented on spoken word poetry and how to go about creating it. The poems our children created touched on issues like abuse, mental illness, police brutality and the future. Children can use this empowering medium to release stress, hurt, hope and love they’ve acquired through their own life experiences. Thank you to the Kansas City Art Institute for teaching this art to HALO youth! Are you interested in holding an Explore or Vocational Workshop, or volunteering for HALO?
