THE P.O.E.T ORGANIZATION USES SPOKEN WORD, HIP HOP AND CREATIVE ARTS AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO VIOLENCE FOR AT-RISK YOUTH.


TYRONE DE'ANDRE HAWTHORNE

CPS VENDOR #416413

 Everyone has something they love; you are already doing it!! Whether talking to a close friend about what you are going through in life or listening to music; we encourage our youth to use Spoken Word Poetry and Hip Hop to tell their stories. Sharing your Testimony will encourage others to do the same. 

When like-minded volunteers and youth share their stories, it gives others hope. Once a connection is established between our volunteers and at-risk youth; that's when the real magic happens. We have now created youth mentors/volunteers and former at-risk youth to mentor their peers.
