Your Impact: a safe space in juvie

While many of our programs serve girls over weeks, months or years, Juvie Groups provide a chance to connect with girls only for a few hours.  This is because the majority of girls are detained in King County Juvenile Detention for days or weeks at a time. 

So how does Powerful Voices make an impact in just a few hours?

In the short-term, we provide a safe space for girls who are surviving within a system not historically designed for their needs.  In the long-term, we work in solidarity with their families, detention staff and partners like Team Child and Seattle Public Health to equip them with skills and support to prevent further detention and help them navigate challenges in their lives.

At the end of one of our groups we asked girls to complete the sentence, "One thing I learned today is..."

Their responses:
  • how much strength and power girls have
  • working together can be fun
  • to be able to be more patient
  • to be willing to try
  • girls are smart
  • I can have fun no matter what
  • being honest is good
  • people really do care

In 2012, Powerful Voices touched the lives of 49 young women detained in King County Juvenile Detention.  These services were funded due to the generosity of individuals who gave to Powerful Voices over the year.  Thank you.

  1. THIS IS GENUINE. NO SCAM. Hi! My name is Myriam Boyer. I want to tell my testimony to the whole world how this great and powerful man called Great Baba helped me to bring back my partner. My man left me for another lady for five years. I almost gave up until my friend advised me and introduced me to this great man whom she met on the internet and how he also helped her. I never believed at first but she encouraged me and i tried to believe and contacted him on his email. I told and explained everything to him and he assured me that he will help me and that i should not worry too much. I believed him and i did all that he asked me to do which i did and it work perfectly and my husband came back to me begging for forgiveness. I am so happy and excited now. I discovered that when my husband came back he even loved me more than the way he used to love me before he left me. Great Baba opened up his eyes to see how much i love him and how much love we ought to share together as one. This is not brain washing contact Great Baba now on Greatbabaofsolution.blogspot.com Highersolutiontemple.blogspot.com Good
