Our Mission: To use our voices. To open the dusty hope chests and neglected cupboards or mind and self. To dispel illusion and battle oppression wherever we encounter it. To enjoy art and wit and good conversation.
The Breaking Ground is a volunteer-run organization rooted in the belief that through storytelling, positive reinforcement, and educational programming we can build a stronger generation of readers, writers, and thinkers.
We seek to create opportunities for local youth to build self-confidence through free monthly open mics, poetry slams, and writing workshops. We believe in cultivating safe environments for self expression to create positive engagement between youth leaders and their community.
