SCO Foster Youth Hold Girls Symposium

June 19, 2019 / SCO News

Young women in SCO’s foster care program took part in their annual Girls Symposium, a day filled with alternative/creative therapies to create a space for self-actualization and realization of purpose.

Activities included a spoken word/journaling exercise led by NYC Urban Word, a high-energy dance class hosted by Urban Bush Women, and a therapeutic art activity led by SCO staff. In the art activity, each girl traced both hands – their left hand signified things in their past they wanted to release, their right hand signified their dreams and hopes for the future.

It was an inspiring, uplifting day for all!
