Meet our children
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Psalm 22:6
Focused on a culture-based visual and performing arts program, the Arts Academy provides a safe, after school environment for students who live in a community ravaged by poverty and crime every day. With the help of your donations, our students are able to participate as a choir and perform at various times and venues throughout the year. Here is a video of their last community-based art project on what it means to Rise Up in Chattanooga. These pieces went into the Rise Up Ladder Sculpture on Glass Street as part of their Build a Better Block event. Please help support this vital program that empowers these children to connect with other cultures and build self-esteem.
