A little bit about afterschool:
Our unique program helps level the playing field for underserved youth by creating a safe, nurturing environment that focuses on educating the whole child--physical, mental, emotional. We not only provide quality arts education, but also the nurturing, love, and mentorship many kids need to flourish both in and outside of the classroom. Each week, we use dance and fitness as a way of fostering collaboration, cooperation and communication with at risk youth. As our kids learn and become proficient in new skills, their self-esteem soars and they realize they are capable of anything they put their mind to. We creatively weave life skills like goal setting, dealing with emotions, empathy and leadership into the curriculum, making DMF Youth truly unique. The program culminates with a fully choreographed dance performed for the school and local community.
I can't begin to express how your generous support helps in our efforts to build confidence, self-esteem, and determination in the most underserved youth population. Check out the story below of one of our returning students to see what kind of impact we are making!
