Target demographics: Students from any financial background -- from the wealthy to those in poverty, who don't fit into academics and sports rarely find their niche and can have more of a propensity for undesirable outcomes. RBA was founded to help catch those falling in the cracks and instruct all in the arts within the region with desire and interest at any age, ability or disability regardless of financial means. This will raise the overall cultural and education bar for our region as statistics prove that art and the brain are a powerful combination in building self esteem, reducing social ills and promoting higher grades and education.. RBA's arts education begins as young as lap babies and spans to ladies in their 70's tap dancing.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Well over 300 plus

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Serve on a committee 3 hours a month in one of the following areas of Programming/Education, Events, Fundraising, PR/Marketing, Operations or Community Relations. Some of the tasks that are needed are: data input, research or write grants, develop marketing pieces, Support events or help plan one, Secretarial support, greeting public, support in cleaning or upkeep of our facility ---- lots of opportunities to give of time.

Geographic areas served: Henderson County with outreach to surrounding counties in KY

Programs: Tiny Notes for Pre-school to 5 years, Piano, Guitar (all types), Double Bass, Keyboard, Social Ballroom Dance, Voice, Theater/Acting, Culinary Cooking Classes, Tap Dance, Ballet, Jazz Dance and More!

Mission:
RiverBend Academy advances life in our region by infusing superior arts enrichment and culture primarily through premium instruction in various areas of the arts as an inclusive mentoring school for the arts.
Results:
Presently RiverBend Academy (RBA) serves primarily the Henderson County, Kentucky market. However, approximately 10% of students travel as much as 45 minutes away to access our expert instruction downtown at the academy in Henderson from adjacent Kentucky Counties..

We are in 5 Henderson County Schools, after-school,but growing. Presently we serve both public middle schools, 3 public elementary schools, one private elementary school & middle school, and an alternative school.
