Youth Share Their Stories

Pear - Creatively Mentoring Homeless Youth

To celebrate p:ear’s 10th anniversary and prepare for this May’s p:earblossoms X: Story, we’re asking the kids express their own stories. This week videographer Jacob Hinmon recorded youth talking about their stories, and next week p:ear member and PNCA writer-in-residence Barry Sanders will do a workshop on stories. Ask yourself:


Where were you in your life when you met p:ear? Where are you now?

Do you think p:ear helped you find your place or voice / sense of self-worth?

If you were looking back 10 years from now, what part will p:ear have played in your life?
