When a child writes, do we just scan their words or do we take the time to actually understand what's being said?. Do we encourage a child to write what 's in their thoughts, but frozen in their mind? It's time to unthaw and get to the bottom of some issues that have been around for years and left unexplained.

"When a child writes" is a youth raiser program. In partnership with the schools, community organizations, and parents children ages 6-18 are given a chance to write a detailed account of their life, be it good or bad. If a child is ready to open up, are you prepared to read it with understanding and without judgement?

Once written, a child's story is sealed in an envelope and put in a bag to be opened by our crew in preparation for publishing. The title of this book is "Between the Sheets and Me" and it has many series that address the main reason a child acts the way she or he acts.  This book is signed, " Love, No Name Needed." after every entry. We are not looking to single out a child but more to understand the behaviors of a child.  Every child can be raised up to do amazing things, but we have to show them the amazing willingness we have to help them achieve those things.
