What We Do

The Arts Empowerment Project connects court-involved and at-risk children to existing arts and enrichment opportunities in Charlotte, and funds their tuition and transportation fees. In addition to connecting youth to existing arts opportunities, our organization develops and implements several programs per year to bring art directly to children where they are. The Arts Empowerment Project collaborates with over a dozen community partners to increase children's access to the arts. Our innovative programs infused with the arts are tailored to provide youth with opportunities to develop social and emotional life skills, experience positive self-expression, discover new opportunities, and build awareness and resilience. Through art, they are empowered to break the cycle of violence and alter the trajectory of their lives.
