Save Our Youth, a project of Red Salmon Arts (RSA), gives voice and empowers Ňat riskÓ youth, redirecting self-destructive patterns into positive and creative outlets through participation in writing workshops that focus on culture, arts, and literacy.

Workshops help participants build self-esteem and develop verbal/written communication and conflict resolution skills. Previously facilitated by raślrsalinas, SOY has conducted extensive writing clinics in high schools, middle schools, and juvenile justice facilities.

Save Our Youth is directed, facilitated, and organized by a mostly volunteer crew of educators, students, artists, activists, and visionaries.

This project is supported in part
by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
