Welcome to the Voices of Dan Street

This page was created to house and display the voices from the Ohio Summit County Juvenile Detention Center in Akron, Ohio, where each week, teaching artists work to empower adolescents with the strength of their own words. In collaboration with the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University, the pieces posted on this blog are products of these sessions and have not been altered other than for grammar and spelling corrections.
