TDN’s unique RIPPLE Program™ is centered on the notion of embodied knowledge and the cultivation of multiple intelligences — emotional, intellectual and physical. Participants are given a different language to communicate with, drawn from their cultural reservoirs, as well as a venue where they can freely conceptualize and vocalize their feelings.
The program integrates 3 modules:
- Music to Alleviate (MU2AL) – Assist participants find themselves through the benefit of music as it generates emotions and feelings. Thanks to music, as it awakens emotions, it is possible to get to the root of their problems from the personal experience of each participant, and in this way, discover, redirect and/or solve those experiential problems and the behaviors associated with them. Through this innovative educational platform, either in person or virtually, participants gain both self-awareness and a sense of belonging.
- Storytelling Dynamics – Through the exploration of social and culturally relevant stories, the Storytelling Dynamics module engages adolescents in active listening about prevention and promotes self-expression and dialogue. This gives a voice to the youth’s own narratives.
- Social Photography – Participants learn rudimentary photography skills while gaining a deeper understanding of their surrounding community and health-related issues. The Social Photography fosters a process of self-expression and thoughtful communication about identity and community.
