Volunteer: A Window Between Worlds (LA)
April 20, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm PDT
April Volunteer Day
A Window Between Worlds (AWBW) is a network of transformative arts programs at partnering human service agencies nationwide. Their programs provide art as a tool for empowerment and healing to hundreds of thousands of women, men and children who have experienced violence and trauma. Their goal is replacing violence and shame with safety and hope. Their network of partners includes domestic violence shelters, sexual assault agencies, homeless shelters, veteran’s programs, foster youth services, substance abuse treatment centers, school districts, community programs, and more. Visit awbw.org to learn more.
Up to 70% of people will be impacted by trauma in their lifetime.
Up to 43% experience trauma by the age of 18.
Creation of art reduces distress, increases self-reflection and self-awareness, alters behavior and
thinking patterns, has positive physical effects, causes specific brain regions to interact,
leading to stronger resilience.
