Helping students discover their creativity
Students may have the opportunity to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the arts.
At Teen Challenge Alberta, students have the opportunity to use their musical gifts to assist with worship in chapel, at graduations and recently had the opportunity to play during a Nicky Cruz rally.
Also, students sometimes use their free time to try other arts/crafts. For example, recently some students became interested in learning how to build—the body, fretwork and electrical parts—of electric guitars. Other students have been interested in learning carving and carved beautiful, intricate walking sticks. Another intern created sculptured picture frames out of scraps of wood. One student created a uniquely carved wooden trophy called the Teen Challenge Cup that is awarded to the top golf fundraisers.
