Creating Safe Spaces for Healing
with Youth of Color
Through the use of theater arts, written and spoken word, we foster youth voice and build trust and community between youth who have faced disparities and the institutions that have failed them.
The Black Youth Healing Arts Center (BYHAC) provides cultural, ancestral, and innovative processes to healing for Black youth foremost, while creating safe spaces and healing opportunities for youth of color.
Videos for middle and high school students that talk about real life issues and ways to cope and heal.
VYB (Value Your Breath) is a series of 14 breathing, mindfulness, and wellness tool videos and discussion questions for middle and high school students. Each video features youth of color who share their stories and guide students through breathing tools.
Annual subscription plans are available for individuals, schools, and community organizations and include exclusive access to the VYB app.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Irreducible Grace Foundation conducted a self-care workshop at my school, and their work left a lasting impact on students and staff. Every IGF member embodied pose, yet each person brought his/her own energy and knowledge. Breathing exercises, team building activities, and reflective moments gave us what we (students and staff) all needed, self-assurance and compassion for others. Students were heard; they walked away with their own poems and affirmations. I cannot thank IGF enough for their dedication and continuous work for youth and adults."
