Our Mission

Providing leadership development experiences and opportunities for urban youth pursuing the arts.


Our Vision

The acronym L.I.F.E reveals our aim for each student that participates in our program as we strive to instill the tenets of Leadership, Innovation, Faith and Excellence. Our curriculum strategy will focus on the areas of Art, Culture and Technology.  Our mission is to use the ACT model as a mechanism to develop the leaders of today by investing in their legacy and providing them with the necessary resources and supportive culture to not only succeed but to be able to show others a path to success. Students will learn first hand what it is to conceive an idea, cultivate a vision and systematically build both culture and infrastructure that sustains and supports innovation and market success. The partnership will also offer unique mentoring and volunteer opportunities for those organizations working within the collaborative.
