THE PROBLEM

State of the Mind

More than ⅔ of children around the world have seen or witnessed an act of violence (WHO) resulting in trauma and mental health disorders. Today, 4/5 youth in need of Mental Health do not receive it. The Mental Health Crisis is growing among youth and adolescents. When these issues go unaddressed at a young age, studies have shown negative outcomes are a result which continue well into adulthood.

Depression, anxiety and low self worth are direct results of trauma and victimization among children and teens. Without intervention, youth are more likely to have poor academic performance, drop out of school, demonstrate aggressive behavior and/or participate in substance abuse.

OUR SOLUTION

TSG Arts-Based SEL Program

The arts are an important platform for cognitive development and an emotional outlet for youth which can mitigate the cycle of violence.

Art provides an outlet for positive development and self expression. Our Arts-Based Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Program teaches students to find the ‘good’ first within themselves and then connect it to what surrounds them.

We partner with schools and community organizations to bring our trauma-informed program to youth ages K-12 to empower young people with positive mindset, art expression, and mindfulness tools to cope with trauma.

WHAT WE DO

Find, Create and Share the ‘Good’

Through our Art-based SEL program, public art events, mission, we transcend the belief that ‘good’ is something we can all comprehend – and that is what connects us as human beings.

With positivity comes hope and with hope brings resilience, gratitude and humanity. Art is the vehicle we use to bring this positivity to our future leaders, our youth.

EMPOWERING OUR FUTURE LEADERS

BRIANNA'S 'SIMPLE GOOD' STORY

TSG Ambassador, Brianna speaks about her experience in our Arts-based SEL Photography Program.

Over two stretches of summer from 2017 through 2018, Brianna built the skills that would help solidify her foundational knowledge of photography. She credits our curriculum for setting the framework for how she would tell stories and spread #thesimplegood using her art medium.

Today, Brianna is a student at Columbia College and she is the proud owner of her own photography business.
