Every day, over 16 million students in America leave school and go home to an empty house. Those who are most vulnerable are often at risk of delinquent behavior and lack the encouragement, social shaping, and life skills that are essential to becoming a healthy and productive adult.
The Prodigy Cultural Arts Program is a research proven prevention program that provides a safe arena where students age 6-19 learn effective communication, problem solving and conflict resolution skills through visual and performing arts.
The purpose of the Prodigy program is to provide the instruction, tools and resources that will lead to transformed lives. Students are encouraged to explore themes and ideas that develop a sense of self-worth, as well as appreciate the worth and value of others and the world in which they live. When students have a better understanding of who they are and how they connect with their communities, they are better prepared to become productive and socially responsible adults.
