Who do we want to be?
How can we provide more authentic, supportive communities for young people? Our youth and arts programming makes space for youth and young adults to learn about themselves and to grow, in community and in partnership with supportive adults. We also offer training for adults to learn to work better with young people. Our programming includes annual youth camps at the Commonweal Bolinas location, virtual workshops and trainings through Partnership for Youth Empowerment, and our unique Visual Thinking Strategies and Creative Facilitation workshops. Together, these Commonweal programs are fostering resilience and hope across generations.
The age coming into reality is more like jazz. You play because you understand the integrity of the sole notes that are sounded by others. And you harmonize to give this planet our good fortune of having a kind of existence.
Awaken creativity, connect with friends in nature, and just have fun. Find out more about Power of Hope and register for the next camp at Commonweal's retreat space in Bolinas, California.
