Urban Legacy Scholarship Program
Community development is at the forefront of Urban Soul’s mission and vision. We strongly believe that the arts have the potential to improve the quality of life of both children and adults.
We are extremely excited about our Urban Legacy Scholarship program which will help fund our newest community development project, Urb@n K!ds. Urb@n K!ds (ages 10-13) is a Community Development initiative that provides quality dance training and social development skills to youth living in the Greater Houston area. With a genuine interest in the overall development of all participants, the program uses creativity to promote individuality, character, wellness, and cultural awareness.
Through our Urban Legacy Scholarship program, we will provide the opportunity to experience dance education to Houston’s most vulnerable communities. We identify that these areas have limited access to the arts due to budget restrictions that often eliminate arts funding in the public school system. Our goal is to provide intense weekly dance instruction for 25 children who are chosen to participate in our program through an audition process. In addition to professional level dance training, we will work with each student to foster crucial social developmental skills through workshops, speakers, and projects. Academic support will also be one of the unique components of this program.
A dance education has many advantages for children, including:
- Improved Physical Health
- Socialization Benefits
- Educational Benefits
- Improved Self-Esteem
We Need You
Our goal is to raise $25,000
