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

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Every person is valuable and deserves to be understood. Through our programs, our students gain self-confidence and personal satisfaction, as well as a sense of self-sufficiency and capability. We can recognize the potential of every child, youth, and adult, and that disabilities are not a barrier to success; by allowing students to experience improved learning tactics, communication skills, and classroom success. Together, we can empower people of all abilities to be active, positive and contributing members of our community; by experiencing increased civic engagement in the greater Grand Rapids area. The arts are a fundamental tool in helping all people to reach their potential. Our students experience a higher likelihood of completion and/or graduation, and professional opportunities.
