BENEFITING: Capital City Education Alliance
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2016
Let's Paint! is the signature program for the Capital City Education Alliance in Hartford. We work with middle school students in some of the roughest neighborhoods in Hartford. Each semester we pick a new school to work with to beautify in the meaningful way with a group of up to 25 dedicated students. While the students learn about color theory, design and commercial painting, we teach them the foundational skills to be workforce ready when they are 16 and can hold a job. Not only do we transform their school, we transform the student! Each school costs us approximately $35,000. We've applied for several grants and some fundraising, but every $1.00 helps. Please consider helping us with our effort.
