Art/Visual Design – Youth choose this group to experience artistic expression and learn self-management skills. DREAM Group Leaders help youth identify positive and healthy inspirations for artistic designs. Youth may develop comic book characters and process their personal experiences, process their own thoughts and feelings, and problem-solve and help manage the behaviors of their comic book character in response to specific issues.
Creative Writing – Youth choose this group to express themselves through poetry, songs, and short stories. Youth are encouraged to write about their experiences, thoughts, and feelings. Opportunities to share creative writing pieces are also an experience of this group.
Dance & Movement – Youth choose this group due to an interest in a dance genre and/or fashion. Structured dance sessions may include jazz, ballet, hip hop, or liturgical dance. Youth also join this group to engage in the designing, styling, and modeling of clothing.
Vocal/Instrumental – Youth choose this group to compose, write, record, and perform original songs. This group is uniquely designed to naturally link youth to liberating artistic expression. DREAM Group Leaders suggest various academic concepts and life skill strategies for youth to include in their musical production.
