Our program, Bridge the Gap’s [BTG] mission is to edutain youth, ages 5-18, about the Arts so that they can be educated and entertained while discovering their creativity and artistic talents at an early age.
Education of the Arts is being drastically reduced from school budgets and curriculums. It is more important than ever, to ensure that youth are still being educated and entertained within the Arts. This improves their academic performances and helps foster creative thinking. It also keeps at-risk youth, in communities that are underserved and under resourced, off the streets.
BTG will be the first program of its kind to integrate technology, social media, and education of the Arts. It will offer kids a free mobile app that allows them to upload, view, rate, and share videos of their artistic talents. While using their creativity, unique skills and talents, they will also have educational guides and games, in order to learn of the historical moments and legacies about their favorite sources of the Arts and its entertainers.
With your support, we will provide millions of kids a program that allows them to have fun while exploring, creating, and expressing themselves through the Arts.
