Free Arts NYC is all about transforming the lives of underserved children through arts and mentoring. They’ve served over 32,000 children, and engaged more than 18,000 volunteers.
There is no doubt about the importance and benefits of art in children’s education and life. Also, we do know the importance of donations or actually being present and helping those in need.
Moreover, it’s definitely a fulfilling experience that will change your life in every way imaginable. When you learn how to give, your life experience literally expands.
Free Arts NYC’s is a fantastic project that we strongly believe in and understand the huge benefits that their program brings to underprivileged kids in New York City.
Their mission is to:
“Provide underserved children and families with a unique combination of educational arts and mentoring programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential.”
With this, they also help bring to life the child’s creative side. And, give them all the skills needed to have a successful, bright and fulfilled future.
Their approach is:
“Free Arts NYC takes a “cradle to college” approach. We provide arts-based mentoring for youth from pre-K all the way through high school.”
What a fantastic work, right?
