AMARD&V Program Empowers At-Risk Youth

The AMARDV Summer Program helps central New Jersey at–risk youth between the ages of 10 and 16 to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding about the performing and visual arts through an interdisciplinary curriculum that emphasizes hands–on learning and art making, mentored by professional teaching artists in a community–based setting. The goal is to empower young people to transform their lives, their attitudes about themselves, and their community, as well as develop skills that equip them for a successful education and a healthy future. Applications for the summer program are available beginning in May.

AMARDV is a partnership between Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Community Health Promotion Program, Rutgers University Latino Center for Arts and Culture, PRAB, and Suydam Street Reformed Church in New Brunswick.

Please see highlights from this groundbreaking program.
