Students use spoken word to express themselves



Healthy Minds Academy is a student-led organization that aims to empower youth in subjects of healthy, social, and environmental issues in the community. Every week the Healthy Minds volunteers hold a two hour session which includes a one hour educational workshop and one hour of study hall. University of Pittsburgh students provide homework help during the study hall portion.

This week's educational workshop topic was Slam Poetry. Students worked on poetic techniques and were encouraged to perform their spoken word poems out loud.
