Meade Palidofsky – Founder

Meade Palidofsky  worked for 36 years to secure a safe, creative space for youth in the justice system to confront their trauma by writing and sharing their stories. She is the genesis of all that the company is today, having built a team of 23 talented teaching artists that now impact over 100 youth each year. Her drive, passion, and determination has created countless community champions for our work and ensured ever-growing opportunities to help youth transform the vision of their future.
