Program 1

1. Sing OUT LOUD - Bringing the benefits of the Arts to underprivileged children. Disadvantaged children with demonstrated and yet-to-be developed aptitudes for art, drama, music and dance do not take part in creative activities as often as other children, because their parents simply cannot afford the expense. Children whose creative talents are nurtured become our future artists, singers, actors, musicians and dancers. 2. Level the Playing Field, encouraging ongoing participation of at-risk youth in recreational and competitive sports leagues. Fitness and social skills of low-income, at-risk children suffer because their families cannot afford the fee to participate. Most youth sports leagues are staffed by volunteers and have limited funds for scholarships. Fees, clinics and equipment are simply beyond the reach of many families. Sports do more than teach a game; they connect players to schools, to communities, to other kids and to caring adults. Children learn fundamental life skills including commitment, respect for authority, fair play, cooperation, and conflict resolution, and how to manage disappointment and success. These skills benefit children in all areas of their lives enabling them to be productive members of society. - Opportunities to excel in sports are vital to the full development of athletically gifted, underprivileged children. - Kids who play sports are less likely to be involved in risky behaviors and have less unsupervised time. - Organized sports activities provide occasion for routine social interaction and teach consistency via a structured nature. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to participate in sports if money is not the limiting factor. LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD can remove this barrier for many kids. 3. Care About Kids' Health, Basic Needs & Feelings, helping meet the physical, environmental and emotional needs of at-risk children. HEALTH Disadvantaged families are less likely to be able to afford dental, medical and optical services: * A child who needs glasses may be unable to access information available to other students and may even suffer headaches or dizziness, rendering them unable to learn. * A child who has a toothache, needs braces, or simply has not been taught adequate oral hygiene may be distracted and have difficulty concentrating. * A child who is in poor health or whose health is not being monitored on a regular basis may have medical needs that interfere with his ability to participate in the classroom. Children who are in good physical health are able to learn and retain information and are less likely to be disruptive in the classroom.
