Our Mission

Writing, a form of expression can be used to articulate thoughts, ideas, feelings, views, and opinions. The written word can also be a critical tool to help in self-discovery and connecting with others. The Murals of the Mind™ Project (aka M.O.M. ™) exists to engage youth and young adults in a dialogue with themselves and with others. Through creative writing activities that are inventive, fun, challenging, innovative, and thought provoking, M.O.M. helps young people discover themselves.

Our Mission
M.O.M. encourages positive, non-violent, active participation and self-expression and strives to compliment academics by tapping into the intellectual spirit in a way that can creatively support language arts. M.O.M. focuses on revealing the artistic power and real life value of writing and the use of words by infusing imagination with critical thinking; observation with teamwork; art and culture with camaraderie.

M.O.M. is a vehicle that helps young people find their voices, tell their stories. M.O.M. strives to encourage youth and young adults to embrace, celebrate and accept their uniqueness – quirks and all.
