Atlanta, Georgia – The Alchemy Sky Foundation announced a partnership with Covenant House Georgia and Metro Music Therapy to facilitate weekly music workshops for homeless, runaway and trafficked youth (ages 18-21) who have found a home at Covenant House.
The music sessions are held on-site at Covenant House Georgia and consist of various exercises, activities and interactions that help teens express their emotions and feelings in a healthy way. These youth have often escaped abusive or neglectful homes only to end up on the streets of Atlanta; music is a means to release the negative emotions associated with their past.
Instruments and equipment are provided by Metro Music Therapy of Georgia and the Alchemy Sky Foundation to keep the workshops interactive and fun. The workshops foster a positive environment that teaches communication skills, boosts self-esteem and inspires creativity through the healing power of music.
Covenant House Georgia is a subsidiary of Covenant House International, the largest, privately funded nonprofit service organization serving homeless young people in the Americas. Covenant House Georgia has been providing food, shelter, counseling, education and vocational training to homeless, runaway and trafficked youth in the Greater Atlanta area since 2000.
