Emmaus Expressions of Hope is an arts-based program focused on developing leadership and literacy through artistic expression. Expressions of Hope is a 6 session (2-4 hours per session) arts program offered to students in the West Charlotte community. 

Students enhance literacy and leadership skills as they progress through the development of various art mediums and strengthen their community voice. The Expressions of Hope program has been designed to incorporate literacy, public speaking, and group leadership into the creation and presentation of the arts. Students create inspirational short videos, music, graphic designs, paintings, and poems to share with their community.
