The Beat Within was founded in San Francisco, (1996) when David Inocencio, former assistant director of Detention Diversion Advocacy Program, teamed up with Pacific News Service to offer writing workshops to youth detained in San Francisco’s Youth Guidance Center (YGC). Today, The Beat Within staff and volunteers serve over 5,000 youth annually through workshops operated in 13 California county juvenile halls. Inocencio will discuss their mission to promote youth literacy and self-expression and how you can get involved now.
