WE BELIEVE IN TRANSFORMATION

The mission of POPS the Club is to support youth impacted by incarceration and confront the challenges they experience. Through arts-based programs, POPS creates a safe, empowering space for these youth, transforming stigma into hope and dignity so they can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally, now and as adults.

POPS Club Members:

  • Share a nourishing meal.

  • Engage in creative activities and thougthful discussion.
  • Create poetry, stories, artwork and films.

  • Develop strong bonds.

  • Engage in mindfulness exercises.

POPS the Club’s young people are breaking down systemic barriers in their minds, schools, and communities. The youth POPS serves expresses themselves powerfully about the impact POPS has had on their lives.

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.

-Maya Angelou
