NTC Foundation’s Arts Education Program for Underserved Youth
Liberty School, founded by the NTC Foundation in 2007, aims to support and inspire local school-aged children who face socio-economic challenges and who may be at risk for academic success. By providing access to arts education, Liberty School offers these underserved students an opportunity to engage with various art forms, helping them process their emotions, develop critical thinking skills, and enhance their ability to learn.
Arts education has been shown to have a positive impact on students, offering a creative outlet for self-expression and fostering important skills such as problem-solving, collaboration, and communication. By exposing underserved children to the arts, Liberty School not only enriches their educational experiences but also opens up new avenues for personal and academic growth.
Art professionals, who partner with Liberty School, provide a range of artistic activities, including visual arts, music, theater, dance, and more. These activities can help students discover and explore their creative abilities, boost their confidence, and develop a lifelong appreciation for the arts.
By focusing on students who may be at risk, Liberty School plays a vital role in addressing educational inequalities and nurturing the potential of underserved youth. By providing access to arts education, Liberty School helps to level the playing field and give these students the tools they need to succeed not only academically, but contributes to their holistic development and paves the way for a brighter future.
