Music & Memory

One Life pairs seniors with dementia with teens and creates customized iPods together. Seniors take a step back in time and the music unlocks memories of their past and they share the experience with teens.

Art Speak

ArtSpeak was developed to help teens and adults explore the fundamental connection between art and the healing process through the use and application of art therapy. Art therapy is a non-traditional, self-expressive and creative way to explore life's challenges and develop self awareness. Our goal is to inform the community around the benefits of art and to minimize the stigma around teen mental illness. Our teens need support and ArtSpeak is dedicated to empower and help encourage teens throughout their journey in life.
