Programs: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ArtEsteem(sm) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This program is an after and during school violence prevention program for at-risk children and youth. The program uses self-reflective art as a way to encourage community building and raise self-esteem. It currently serves children and youth ranging in ages from 6 to 18. The program incorporates literacy and social studies into its curriculum, allowing youth to get excited about learning through art. The program was designed to address the emotional literacy, intellectual and practical skills of the children and youth living in West Oakland, predominately African-American children impacted by violence, poverty, high rates of unemployment and substance abuse.

This program works to eliminate the symptoms that cause child abuse. This program addresses the lack of resources and sources of information to the community members; the lack of parents engagement in their children's education and schools; and lack of adult education opportunities and vocational skills.
