Mural Music & Arts Project
September 19, 2012

MMAP came here to our site last summer for the first time. We were all unsure as to what we signed up for. It sounded exciting, Music, Mural Art? All the things we all enjoy.

Then it happened, the young people started coming through the doors and we became huge. An additional 25 to 30 people in our program! Shut the front door!

But it turned out to be a great summer. We had a good time getting to know one another and best of all we learned more about what MMAP is really about.

Besides it being a great opportunity for our youth to open up and express themselves in an environment that they may not normally have the opportunity, descriptions of what MMAP does for our young people begin with giving them an Education,

Opening up Communication, Exposing them to Accountability, Diversity, Community, Murals, Music, Art, Self Expression, Recognition, Youth Showcasing, Teamwork and Collaborations would be some of the words I would use to describe MMAP. Oh and Making Friends.

This summer proved to be even better. We are all more familiar and more comfortable with one another. The mural this year is bigger and it is beautiful!

We are very happy to have MMAP at our site and I believe we have developed a great partnership for the future. I am happy to announce that beginning this fall we will be a year round site for MMAP. We get to reap the benefits of such a great program and a fabulous team.

On behalf of the staff here at the Central Y we salute the MMAP staff for your courageous efforts, your great rapport with the youth and your outstanding talents.

Thank you for being here!
