About The Arts Empowerment Project

The Arts Empowerment Project believes in the transformative power of the arts to alter the path of abused, victimized and at-risk children, and provide them with a brighter outlook for the future.

As a liaison between court-involved and at-risk youth and existing local arts and enrichment programs, we screen the children referred to us by the court and other interested parties, match their interests to the local programs best suited to meet their needs, and fund their tuition and transportation fees. The Arts Empowerment Project is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.
