BENEFITING: Art Studio, Inc.
Summer is a high-risk time for youth in need. Without access to free meals at school and programs to hold their interest, these youth often go hungry and engage in risky behaviors, alcohol, drugs, violence and gang-related activities. The last census ranked Little Haiti Miami as the most impoverished urban city in the U.S. That is why your support of our Summer Programming is so needed.
ABOUT “OUR WORLD” SUMMER PROGRAM: A typical day includes wellness and holistic activities alongside fun, artistic activities with local Artists and Caring Instructors who inspire and encourage our youth to develop healthy relationships and stay on a positive path. We collaborate with many groups such as Dream in Green, Big Blue & You, Miami Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art, Nature’s Natives, Sierra Club, Adrienne Arsht Center, and the Marlins, for field trips and presentations that engage students in a wide variety of activities making summer break a fun experience.
Although any donation amount will help, here are some costs to keep in mind:
• $375 – cost per student for full summer program
• $150 – transportation cost to bring 36+ youth on an educational field trip
• Feeding & engaging youth in Little Haiti - Priceless
