Enrichment Tracks

LELA House offers 3 enrichment tracks for you to discover your unique design, become critically engaged, and transform your community.

Educational Enrichment Tracks:

Learners, Families, Educators

Each track offers opportunities for learners, families and educators to engage in Writing, Reading, and Real & Raw Exploration

Writing

The written word is a vehicle for people to understand themselves and one another, and it’s a way to feel understood. Writing is a transformational tool with the power to reshape individuals and entire societies, both through the writing itself and through reading the written product. Through writing, you can equip yourself with creative, analytical, and communication skills that you will use for your entire life. Writing can help you discover your place in the world as well as create it.

Reading

Stories are everywhere. Whether we are telling them or responding to them, stories rest at the foundation of our creativity, our humanity, our very lives. Reading helps you practice gratitude as you connect with and examine what is happening in the reading and subconsciously compare that to your own life circumstances. As you read, you connect with and examine the action taking place in the story and the interior world of the characters. This external analysis hones your ability to clarify your own thoughts and feelings and builds empathy. Reading is a tool for investigating, reflecting, and growing.

Real & Raw Exploration

You are a unique individual with extraordinary talents and gifts. You have a purpose (or many purposes) in life. Instead of floundering trying to figure out why God created you, learn the practices and habits that can help you discover yourself, your passions, and your purpose.

Sometimes we enter into new, foreign territory, and we aren’t sure how to navigate the journey.  Many of us won’t venture into the ‘new’ because we can’t SEE where we are headed, even if we’ve seen others do it.  But, we know that new journeys bring new experiences of joy and happiness.  What I’ve learned is that we need people with us along the way.  We need people that will meet us where we are and encourage us from that point, until we get to the next point and are ready to try again.  It’s essential to experience love along the way, and love from others, so we remain courageous and curious about what lies ahead.  Roshaunda did that for me.  She has been holding my hand, and for that I am eternally grateful.  Let her hold yours.  You will thank me later.
