*Goodwill VISTA* Maine Inside Out, Portland
 
 
 
Maine Inside Out (MIO) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2007 and based in Portland, Maine. We have offered theater programs at Long Creek Youth Development Center (LCYDC) in South Portland for the past nine years, working with more than 250 youth incarcerated at the facility to create and share powerful original theater inside LCYDC and in communities across the state. Since 2014, we have also engaged with released youth, to improve outcomes for youth returning home after incarceration through meaningful community engagement, peer and adult support, leadership development and practical skill-building. In the year ahead, MIO intends to broaden our work around the state, in partnerships and in scope.
