CINCINNATI - Teens with Lighthouse Youth Services got the opportunity Tuesday to shed light on some of their peers' achievements through an outdoor art project.
The "Inside Out" project is a partnership between Lighthouse Youth Services, the Contemporary Arts Center and the Bowtie Cause that entails placing an artistically rendered photo of some of their fellow students who have gone on to do great things with their lives.
The Lighthouse shelter on Highland Avenue in Mount Auburn is the first place to feature the project.
One of the faces appearing on the side of the shelter is Tim Arnold, who founded Lawn Life , spoke Tuesday about how Lighthouse Youth Services helped him.
"[I] actually came through Lighthouse Youth Services myself, and they taught me the tools I needed to really change my way of thinking, and that's where it really starts. If you can change your way of thinking, you can change your life," said Arnold.
Lawn Life provides landscaping services and gives disconnected youth the opportunity to gain real work experience.
