Our art mentorship program which helps youth identify their artistic talent then use that as a positive way to express themselves and to help others.
We have discovered that one of the quickest ways to help raise a young person ‘s self esteem is to help identify some type of artistic talent that they enjoy, give them more training so they can grow in that talent, and then have them use that talent to help some else.
We have already…
- mentored about 60 students at our main location
- offered art programs as diverse as: sculpting, dance, game design, and percussion mentorship programs
- held our own Art Shows where local youth can display their great artistic work.
We are looking to expand our artistic offerings in the very near future to mural design, video production, and a few other areas we are testing.
We are also helping other communities duplicate our work in their own region through what we call the Lighthouse Initiative. That way organizations that we approve can work with us directly and will be able to shine light in their our communities.
