Moving Creations and Emily have been a God sent for my family. My Daughter started with the organization at the beginning,she started out lost confused and even a little defiant,she was at the point where we both needed help.Moving Creations provided a great outlet for my daughter and the other girls to understand why they were feeling he way they were by teaching the girls to look inside themselves. They did many performances with dance and poetry and even a film which they participated 100% everything from witting, stage props,and even being highly involved in their own dance routines. By the time my daughter was near completion she was a leader worthy of following,a confident young women ,and able to resolve controversy among her peers. I am very proud of my daughter and forever thankful to Emily and Moving Creations.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Emily is an inspiration! The work Moving Creations Inc has accomplished over the years is truly remarkable. Participation in this program has transformed girls into young women, young women who are brigther, compassionate, motivated and mature. My work with this company has allowed me to witness how one person can make a difference in the lives of many! Not only has Emily touched the girls she works with but also the staff who have had the pleasure of helping her achieve her goals. As a board member and as a friend, I have watched Moving Creations grow, transform and struggle. I am confident Moving Creations will continue to enrich the lives of the girls it takes under its wings!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing. Moving Creations is able to bring together artists, staff & members of the community who share in Emily's passion of helping young women acquire appreciation, knowledge and skill in the arts.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

award young women the opporunity to empower their lives with the richness of dance, theater and the arts. Something our schools are unable to fulfill.

Emily Nussdorfer and Moving Creations have been some of my principal inspirations in the world of youth empowerment and community transformation through the Arts. As an artist, educator, and activist myself, I was incredibly moved by the work the girls from the Girls on the Move Project created about their growth and transformation, and even more so, their visions for their communities. I have had the distinct pleasure of working with a number of the Girls on the Move Graduates in community poetry festivals, leadership symposiums, and young mother advisory groups, and I have been repeatedly impressed by the comfort with which they face and discuss difficult and complex issues, share openly of themselves and their experiences, and above all, testify for the world they wish to see emerge around them, and their willingness to participate in this process. Having spent years in schools with this age group, I have found this traits to be rare and often far between, but to be commonplace among the girls Moving Creations has embraced. What Moving Creations does so well that others so often struggle with, is maintain a big picture of social synergy and community health through all of its specific and hands on work with the specific needs and obstacles of each girl, supporting them to become their highest selves with a sense of purpose for a large family that needs them. I only wish this program were available to every girl in the Philadelphia public schools.

Moving Creations Inc speaks to my soul. As a young kid I felt lost, confused and alone. My Family did not understand me. My feelings began to manifest themselves physically. It was the arts that saved my life. I have witnessed Moving Creations program Girls on the Move in action. I have seen this program change the path of young girls and more importantly I have seen the young girls become powerful and confident woman. I have seen them tap into female power and become leaders, leaders in their community and leaders of change.

The Great!

Working with the girls. A few years ago I helped teach the girls how to direct and shoot video. It was the first time I had direct contact with them. I was impressed with there vision for the future and how eager they were to learn.

It could reach tens thousands of at risk young woman. Chage their lives and put them on a track to have the kind of life they dream about by. Providing the guidance and resources need to make it happen.

Moving Creations Inc. has been running teen empowerment sessions because our teens need meaningful engagement. The founder of Moving Creations, Emily Nussdorfer, first interested me in her programs through a mutual belief in the power of life changing, rites of passage. Moving Creations Inc. has tested itself in the fire of serving the underserved without the support it deserves. Moving Creations is focused on continuing that service. The program philosophy and practice are specifically the philosophy and practice that will empower our youth, through art based creations, and strengthen our communities through the power of creative youth. Additionally, Moving Creations programming specifically directs funding to local artists and community based venues. Supporting Moving Creations Inc. will help us all to incorperate art into the lives of children and young adults, fostering unique personal and distinct community evolution towards a future of visionary youth and the local artists to mentor them.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The profound experience of seeing young women, with little appreciation for the vast cultural wealth that is encompased in artistic endevor, find the courage and power through art to address their parents and friends about their dreams and frustrations.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Be excited about being a real part of the work that should be happening in every community, supporting artists to inspire and empower our youth, creatively.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being a part of the kind of effort that will, if supported, foster constructively creative individuals who are developing their inate need to grow into a conciousness of their positive place in community and society.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Selflessly motivated to serve youth and stand strong for the importance of real artistic endevor as a core basis of human develpment and evolution.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Establish programs throughout the world that would put cash into the households of local artists as they guide the youth of their communities through logical processes of "rites of passage".

Ways to make it better...

I were able to contribute more time.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of appreciation for the core significance of it's work.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Funding for artists and underserved youth is not going to get easier. Funding Moving Creations projects will instill that value into youth, a few at a time, and they will be the leaders of tomarrow, fostering artistic endevor in their community.
