Sometimes the harm or trauma in a young person's life can show up in ways that are easy for the naked eye to see. But how do we know if and/or when a young person is experiencing healing?
What does healing look like?
Trinity Boston Connects' Youth Development and Leadership programs help our city's youth of color paint vibrant pictures of healing for their lives every day. For some, healing looks like finding their voice to advocate for themselves and believing they can achieve goals they may have once thought impossible. For others, it's the sense of belonging they find in healing communities like Sole Train or TEEP.
Stephen Rodenas, a TEEP and Sole Train alumnus, personifies Healing in Action. Watch the video above to hear his story firsthand as shared at this year's Bostonians for Youth Gala.
