Our programs work to develop cognitive, social, and emotional skills and give youth participants a place of ownership and value. They serve as a preventative measure to keep youth off the street and provide stability and support to empower vision for a future that goes beyond current circumstances. Our 2022-2023 school year is at KCAPA with the new Freshman class!
We work together with other existing leaders and organizations to promote unity, uplift neighborhood communities, and be the catalyst for the change that the kids and youth of our city need. Our 2022-2023 initiatives are focused on serving the community of Nicetown through community outreach and events.
We believe that there is creative potential in every person. We hold space for the youth of our city to discover their inner creativity which has the ability to heal stories and inspire limitless possibilities for the future.
STEELE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PLAYGROUND
We are so excited to give back to our partner school, Steele Elementary Nicetown, by building a new playground for the K-8 students. Playground dedication planned for Spring 2023!
