What We Do

Behailu Academy is a free, art-based after school program in West Charlotte specifically designed for middle school students to develop artistic and social-emotional (SEL) skills in a safe, supportive environment.

Mission
To provide active and reflective experiences where participants learn to collaborate successfully with others, build and express a healthy sense of self, and work toward goals with passion.
