Screening at Michigan Juvenile Detention Association

We are so pleased and honored to to announce that DETERMINED 2 MAKE IT will be screened at the MJDA Annual Higgins Lake Conference on August 11.  This is a statewide conference in Michigan for Juvenile Detention professionals.

It is our hope that the film will help organizations like Youth Arts Alliance! to provide creative arts workshops inside juvenile detention and residential treatment facilities in Michigan. YAA! connects youth and community artists in partnership to explore lives and futures; engagement in the arts provides tremendous vehicles for self-exploration, expression and coping.
