Camino Nuevo Youth Center

SFAI has facilitated an ongoing mentorship program with the Camino Nuevo Youth Center and with the Youth Diagnostic and Development Center (YDDC) in Albuquerque for the past five years. This program engages young men and women experiencing incarceration in creative expression and literary arts with a focus on personal and collaborative development. Albuquerque poet Manuel Gonzalez and Santa Fe filmmaker Philomena Salem are currently co-facilitating a 10-week Poetry & Visual Narrative workshop with young men at YDDC exploring the question, “What is one thing I want the world to know about me?”
