CULTURAL ARTS & RESEARCH CENTER
African-American children and young people require a viable support system that speaks to their Educational, Emotional, and Cultural needs.
Far too many of our children have the lowest grade point averages, the highest dropout and suspension rates, and are most likely the victims of violence and neglect. If they are to have a promising and fruitful future our children must have, Confidence, Competence, and Consciousness to take full advantage of opportunities in a community in which they have membership, benefits and responsibilities.
“ WE BELIEVE EVERY INDIVIDUAL
IS SPECIAL AND GIFTED.”
Garvey/Tubman Center provides structured
opportunities to under-served youth
There is general agreement that the personal achievement of children is enhanced when they are able to have the support of their parents, mentors, and their peers. It is uplifting when they are able to succeed at something and be praised and rewarded for that success.
Short term intervention cannot succeed in impacting the life issues facing our children; our engagement must be long-term, throughout their young lives
The Garvey/Tubman Center will provide structured engaging opportunities to under served youth, while providing a safe-haven during after-school hours. Healthy lifestyle and leadership workshops and retreats will be offered, as well as ongoing study and research of their heritage.
