Mission: Our mission is to positively transform the lives of youth through dance, leadership, and community involvement.
Results: We've expanded EDN! to provide resources, mentorship, training and support to young people to create and sustain their own EDN! chapters. We currently have EDN! chapters in 10 cities throughout the United States
Target demographics: low-income youth across America
Geographic areas served: Santa Barbara, California; Gainesville, Florida; Columbus, Ohio; Stanford, California;
Programs: Everybody Dance Now! offers free hip-hop dance programming to youth who would otherwise lack the funds, transportation or parental support to access dance classes.
This organization is spectacular. What they do is so important, and their growth in the past 2 years is uncharted. Giving opportunities to young people to not only participate in quality arts programming but then also to become leaders in their own right is magical. Two thumbs up for these inspiring leaders.
