Riverbend Academy - School of Performing and Visual Arts
January 25, 2011

Riverbend Academy is a fantastic organization providing much-needed arts instruction to children which is not offered by the local school system. I volunteered as a competitor for the Academy's primary fund-raising effort - Dance With Our Stars. It was a fantastic and worthwhile experience, and we were able to raise much-needed funding for scholarships and activities.

RBA offers a number of programs to children and adults, from dance instruction to musical instruments, visual arts, and even public speaking classes. It is one of the best organizations I've ever had the privilege to support.

The Great!

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

seeing our local children obtain arts education not offered in local schools.

Ways to make it better...

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

Add more programs, and foster closer ties with the juvenile justice system. Instead of picking up trash, a good juvenile criminal sentence would be to take piano lessons (or something) for a set period of time.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Participated in fund-raising event; volunteered to teach a class.
