Pongo's One-on-One Process

We are working with some very distressed young people in our community, and we want to help them heal through creative writing. This web site will explain some of the techniques we use. But, to help you apply our techniques, we'd like to provide context and explain our core principles.

Principles for One-on-One Work

Also, though the Pongo project will always do good when it helps youth to write, we do have a program that helps distressed teens to write about things that have been hard for them to talk about, topics of great emotional significance. So, we'd like to offer some guidelines, based on Pongo's work in juvenile detention, that will allow you to evaluate whether or not your Pongo work with teens is reaching its potential.
