What We Do 

The need is real. Our youth are missing opportunities due to financial hardships, programs being cut or not being available, etc. Many are quitting pursuing artistic professions due to lack of support and connections. Not to mention the mental health crisis our youth are facing at younger and younger ages. 

We aim to remove roadblocks, provide opportunities to experience various artistic forms, and development opportunities through our workshops and financial assistance. By providing workshops, supplies, equipment, connections, financial support, and more we will be able to have happier and more fulfilled youth.
