Pongo Teen Writing

pongo logo 2When I was living in Barcelona in 2008, I was eager to find a direct route into the healing/social services upon my return to Seattle (I’d had a wonderful adventures in Spain, but had not found a way to effectively serve others there that felt meaningful).  I began a short-lived feasibility study on how to use creative writing with distressed populations.  It was short-lived because I found Pongo.  I was honored to serve Pongo for six years, four as a volunteer mentor, two as a project leader and two as Assistant Director, between 2008 and 2017.

Pongo is the reason I returned to school for a Master’s degree in psychology and youth therapy and is the reason I was able to bring together my passion for human rights, healing and the written word.
