e Breaking Ground is a volunteer-run organization rooted in the belief that through storytelling, positive reinforcement, and educational programming we can build a stronger generation of readers, writers, and thinkers.

Breaking Grounds Poets seek to create opportunities for local youth to build self-confidence through free monthly open mics, poetry slams, the dialogue arts festival, and writing workshops. They believe in cultivating safe environments for self-expression to create positive engagement between youth leaders and their community.
