Challenge

Youth in Little Haiti are on a ‘cradle to prison’ pathway that costs more than the educational solutions to fix it. They live in extreme poverty, some with no electricity or running water and are exposed to violence, drugs, and poverty-related trauma. By providing a safe space to utilize art as a creative thinking tool to improve educational and career development, this project takes action to halt the “cradle to prison” scenario for 75 youth and empowers them towards successful futures.

Solution

ASI provides at-risk youth with nutrition, gratitude journal, sketchbook, art supplies, mentors, field trips, art skills, wellness/stress-reduction exercises, life skills, etiquette, career development, environmental awareness and educational support

Long-Term Impact

This project uses art as a creative thinking tool to level the playing field for 75 at-risk youth, empowering them towards self-sufficiency and inspiring them to be a catalyst for positive change in their communities and their home country of Haiti.
