Sports and Art are two of the most cut public programs for school age kids in the US. This is creating a wider divide of the haves and have-nots. We fill a gap in the educational landscape through our kids book, programming, workshops and access to sports.
Screenings for Kids
We will screen short films for kids that have an educational aspect. This will cultivate a larger audience by presenting shorter stories.
All Donations are tax-deductible donations that fund our educational workshops and programming.
Every $5,000 gets a $500 scholarship for a first generation college student!
