PROGRAMS WHERE THE PURPOSE IS THE JOURNEY, NOT THE DESTINATION
House of Shine’s community programs offer creative approaches to teaching SHINE concepts outside of a formal classroom. These programs were created with the belief that each of us possesses a unique set of strengths, hobbies, interests & irritants, needs, and experiences (SHINE). Through House of Shine programming, youth unearth their SHINE and begin making an impact in our world by deciding to leverage what they’ve learned about their talents and gifts.
BE DO SHARE HOLIDAY FAIR
House of Shine’s annual Be Do Share Holiday Fair allows young artisans to sell works of hand-made art (photography, pottery, jewelry, paintings, portraits, etc.) to members of the local community. Young artisans put their SHINE into action by creating and selling their art and then sharing 10% of their proceeds with the charity of their choice. This program allows young people to live at their Point of Intersection – the place where their talents, interests, and the needs they care about in the community come together. Ready to participate?

Research shows that we are not happy because we are successful, but instead, we are successful because we are happy. House of Shine Journaling workshops were developed to teach journaling as a method for gaining a positive perspective on life through the documentation of one’s SHINE. In these workshops, journaling is introduced as a form of personal expression that can take many forms—including writing, drawing, collages, sketches, pictures and painting. Journaling documents the thoughts, feelings, and memories of our daily lives. Register for our next workshop today!
Using Gallup’s StrengthsExplorer instrument for 11 to 14-year-olds, House of Shine helps young people discover their top three strengths. This program allows them to gain insight into their specific combination of strengths and learn strategies for using these strengths at home, in school, with friends, and as a member of a team or organization.
