Spirit Awakening Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to helping underserved youth and children in the juvenile justice system realize their value and self-worth. Since 1995, we have been teaching the unheard the power of positive and productive expression through creative writing, visual arts, improvisation, and meditation.
What We Do
Spirit Awakening Foundation (SAF) is an arts-based nonprofit organization. Since its inception in 1995, SAF has been a pioneer in developing and offering restorative, trauma-informed work, programs and support to underserved, incarcerated and previously incarcerated youth in Los Angeles County. Using the tools of meditation, self-reflection, creative writing, visual arts, mentorship, service, and leadership training, all of which have been guided by field-based research, SAF is able to accomplish our mission to help underserved youth build character and raise self-esteem.
