CREATE

CREATE is Urban Youth Impact’s unique and innovative science and art program! CREATE stands for Connecting, Restoring, Empowering Artists Through Experiences. It’s a program that uses the arts and sciences to connect students with each other and God, restore them to who God’s created them to be, and empower them to creatively express themselves while impacting the world around them.

WHY IT MATTERS

Participation in the arts and sciences produces numerous benefits that have been well documented over the years. Children who participate in the arts and sciences reap benefits that range from academic improvements to greater self-esteem. Students learn the importance of diligence in practice, how to think creatively and express themselves. In spite of the many benefits derived from arts participation, funding for arts-related and creative education has decreased dramatically over the past decade. The decline has been most rapid in poorer, urban schools. Thus, Urban Youth Impact's desire to expose and develop the student's passions.
