The Write of Your L!fe™
The Write of Your life™
The Write of Your L!fe is a 12-week group mentoring program where trauma-trained instructors implement social-emotional learning curriculum for up to 10 units of educational credits and meeting LCAP priorities such as student engagement and improving school climate. Instructors meet with students once weekly for two hours for 12 weeks where students participate in resiliency-building writing and speaking lessons practicing healthy expression, empathy-building, receive positive peer support, gain a sense of purpose and hope, and improve self-esteem. Students participate in mock job interviews, self-portrait painting, examine resilient women in history, publish a group anthology containing their writings, participate in a speech & debate, and create an awareness story-board concerning social injustices. Instructors help students critically think about ways to use their skills, consider alternatives to past choices, visualize their future and ways to avoid risky behavior, break unhealthy cycles, such as in drug and alcohol abuse and violence, and consider different perspectives about family, school and community dynamics.
