Voices of Hope: Summer Youth Program

Voices of Hope Summer Youth offers all students a positive and creative space to grow and explore. Our goal is to foster community engagement with the arts and philanthropy. Nowhere else will students work on a show that has the impact that our show does: Working to rid the world of cancer.

Arts Education...Exercise for your brain.

A growing body of research supports the fact that arts education not only makes students more creative thinkers, but it also has a positive impact on overall academic achievement. Arts education helps students build confidence, social and emotional intelligence and complex problem-solving skills, all of which prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century workplace.

Our program reinforces teamwork and personal best performance. It is a way of preserving, interpreting, understanding and challenging a culture. Our program builds skills in that vital area for a child’s well being.

I hope that your child can join us for a well rounded summer of theater, music, dance and many other skills along with just having fun while helping others.
