BENEFITING: MOTIVATIONAL EDGE INC
EVENT DATE: Dec 22, 2014
Every donation will be MATCHED DOLLAR for DOLLAR and will support our award winning program, Therapeutic Arts for Foster Youth!
This program affords youth in foster care an opportunity to participate in therapeutic, interactive arts based activities through our award-winning programs, The Art of Creative Writing & Lyrical Expression, Urban Arts Expression & Dance Expression.
Along with the Arts component, each student earning a "C' or below in a core subject is required to participate in academic tutoring. Participants engaging in these classes will benefit from being offered a rare and safe outlet for them to positively express themselves, without being judged, and a chance at educational success. Services take place at the various group homes, Specialized Therapeutic Foster Care facilities as well as other locations.
There are many initiatives that help underresourced children, special needs and/or other deserving populations – but rarely has a program of this nature been offered to youth in foster care. That’s why we sought these youth out, helping to reach the unreachable; to change the path of their lives for the better.
