Helping Homeless Youth Discover Their Potential Through Art and Learning
After each school day in Broward County, Young At Art Museum delivers a free, nationally recognized educational arts program for homeless youth ages 5 to 15 years old. ArtREACH includes academic assistance from School Board certified teachers, arts-based activities, behavioral counseling and cultural field trips in a nurturing and creative environment.
"Words cannot express my joy, gratitude and thankfulness for ArtREACH. I could not have been blessed with a better after school program for my son," said Marie, pictured above with Giovanni. "He now has a higher self-esteem, better communication skills and self-confidence. As a single parent, I am at ease knowing my son has help with his homework and is in good hands. Once I saw that the staff were all here to help him grow, and not judge him, I was able to see how blessed we were."
Through support from The Jim Moran Foundation and other funding partners, Young At Art's ArtREACH program will serve 60 children and teens this year.
