What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem my organization is having right now is funding. It’s not easy to gain access to funds from local companies. Fundraisers are not a huge success in our area due to several organizations hosting fundraisers as well.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To serve at risk families by developing creativity and engagement through “THE ARTS”, to motivate personal growth and community well-being.

Our primary goal is to serve at risk families by launching a Musical Arts Academy for the youth. We have partnered with area education professionals who are willing to volunteer their time to help teach our at risk youth about "THE ARTS" to include, music, dance, spoken word, public speaking and more. We will also focus on instrument skills development, audio engineering, theatrical arts, as well as lighting, video walls and live show management. Meals will be provided to the youth we serve at the end of each day.

Our focus is to teach and train these youth to operate all of the above for 1 Year in preparation for the largest fundraiser of the organization which is The Golden Triangle Music Awards Ceremony.

The youth will take what they have learned and apply these skills to operate the entire show with the assistance of our education professionals.

Our main goal is to simply secure funds to purchase equipment that will be used in the academy. Without the equipment we will not be able to teach the youth hands on.

Once we have secured equipment for the organization, we have plans to partner with the local school district and community church organizations to enable us to reach our desired number of participants.

Our organization have several volunteers who are skilled professionals. Our staff includes some of the following, retired educators, high school band directors, food nutrition specialists, an education federal programs coordinator and community leaders who have all come together to help carry out the mission of the organization.

We have secured a staff of volunteers who are all on one accord with the vision for the organization. We are now searching for funding to rent a facility to house the organization until we are financially stable enough to purchase or build a space to accommodate our needs.
