Recently, Anthony Nocella the Education Program Director of Save the Kids facilitated a 8 hour HIPP workshop at MacCormick Secure Facility, between Ithaca and Cortland, New York. Three kids and three staff participated in the workshop for the whole day. After the workshop was completed, the kids wrote poetry to be published in Poetry Behind the Walls. Anthony left MacCormick with more than 20 poems and the brainstorming of coming back with more programs including the hip hop studio.
