Arts, Culture, and Leadership

The Arts, Culture, and Leadership program provides healthy and safe spaces for young people in a variety of ways. 

It also helps young people foster healthy relationships and social skills; become agents of their own change; give them an artistic method of advocacy; and set high expectations for growth. This program gives a voice to the voiceless and hope to those who feel hopeless.

2.Mentoring in the development of an artistic project that addresses a social issue that affects the community

3.Planning of a community/school gathering where the project will be shared and then the hosting of a post production panel will take place.
