Looking for Home

“I believe to help someone, you first have to understand their experience, and we can do that through storytelling.”

Looking for Home

The spoken word poetry club, Looking for Home, provides a supportive environment in which teens from high schools across San Francisco can express themselves freely. Participating students discuss and write about serious issues in their lives and turn their struggles into art. Looking for Home culminates in a public showcase, through which participants find their voices and tell their stories.
