Mission Statement

The mission of
Tools For Tomorrow is to provide after-school arts literacy program integrating
creative writing, art, music and drama for children grades three through five
in elementary schools throughout the Coachella Valley, at no cost to the
children. 

 

Tools For
Tomorrow promotes cognitive, emotional, social, multi-sensory and critical
thinking skills by offering children a hands-on experience in Art, Music,
Creative Writing and Drama. Tools For Tomorrow encourages the children’s
artistic self-expression and nurtures the positive self-esteem resulting from
the discovery of their inherent creativity. As they create their own works of Art they acquire a coping
mechanism for the future: a “tool for tomorrow” and
a vision of what their lives can become.
