Each of our members have their own shine: that is, something that they love to do, something they’ve worked hard at, and/or something that just makes them happy. During our last week of the 2013-2014 Open Doors program, we gathered to share our shine with each other.
In addition, we heard from one member who is learning on the job at an auto repair shop, and one member shared the love of her life, her little dog Chloe. Staff and parents shared as well — poetry, perspectives on life, a dramatic reading.
We had such a great time celebrating each other. At Open Doors, we are so honored to be a safe space where teens can share who they are and what they love, without worry that it will be “good enough.” We love these teens!
Up next — our last day together, dedicated to fun!
