The Creative Arts Program is the umbrella for all our creative and arts related programs. We offer music, theater and other activities that suit the needs and interests of our members. Participants might learn how to put on a production of their own, while working with professionals in the field. The Finale Event is a fundraiser and will showcase all that they've learned. Check our monthly calendar often to see when the program is offered.
The Enrichment Program is the umbrella for all our academic and enrichment related programs. It begins in September and runs through June. It supports members who are in need of academic assistance through our Peer Tutoring program. It also offers scholarship opportunities to students with a GPA of 85% or higher.
