Youth

Juvenile Detention Center in Hays County

DSWM designed a unique program that infuses visual art into storytelling.  Participants are exposed to various artists around a specific theme and then create a piece of art based on a personal narrative.  They write and share their personal memory surrounding the artwork with a group.  DSWM runs two programs each week, one for girls and one for boys.  Check out our Facebook page to see their artwork!

Juvenile Female Inmates in Travis County

There are very few programs that target incarcerated 17-year-old females, and DSWM worked once a week in 2017 with these young women to help them work through previous behaviors and rewrite their next chapter.  We wish them all much success in their new endeavors!
