All in support of Art Studio Miami , a 501c3 npo organization committed to providing a safe location where young people are inspired and guided by teaching artists and professional mentors who support the studentâ€™s education and career development through the integration of creative holistic arts.
Miamiâ€™s poorest neighborhoods are producing young people who lack the skills and resources necessary to compete in the job market today. Many who grow up in poverty have few options to pursue gainful employment or higher education. The programs that the Art Studio Miami offers to youth living in the Little Haiti community concentrates on building the creative thinking skills necessary to gain stable employment and escape systemic poverty. Art Studio Miami utilizes the arts to focus on cultivating vital life skills, including etiquette, public speaking, and interpersonal relationship building. The students also learn resume building, graphic design, website construction, writing, culinary preparation, and are partnered with mentors to further develop skill sets in fields that interest each unique student.
â€œOur goal is to build awareness on behalf of our youth and raise the necessary funds need to make sure every child that wants to participate can attend our programs. Together we are committed to empowering the youth of our community to lead successful lives and have hope filled futuresâ€, states Dee Dee Green,
Development Director, Art Studio Miami, and founder of â€œThese Are All Our Childrenâ€
