WI Greater Madison Offers Voices in Our Community Youth Program:

The Voices in Our Community continues to be one of our most powerful and important youth/community programs. In May 2015, our Voices in the Community program ran another successful program for approximately 20 middle and high school youth from families experiencing homelessness. In addition, we collaborated with faculty and staff from the Early Childhood program in the UW-Madison Curriculum & Instruction department and expanded the program to include components for young children so that we could give the parents an opportunity to explore their own experiences with homelessness through writing. The program was featured on Forward Motion, a program on the Big Ten Network (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CxqpGYPsIw), and led to our partnership with the Division of Continuing Studies for the Odyssey Jr. program
