Live Seed programs exist to create safe spaces for youth to discover their voices using literacy and performing arts while also empowering them to promote social justice and create change in their lives and communities. We acknowledge the need for creative approaches to literacy development and literary arts education, along with the necessity of safe spaces for youth to express themselves without judgement. We strive to provide an environment where young people can undergo a process of personal growth and transformation in a program that enriches their educational, social, artistic, and leadership skills. Live Seed seeks to create a community of student artists and activists, who have an interest in giving back to their communities. Our goal is to empower the next generation of leaders, artists, and activists through the arts.
