The overall mission of this program is to encourage positive growth within the individuals through artistic expression and freestyle performance. We will provide the youth with a judgment-free space for self-expression and self-actualization. With help from skilled dancers from the local community to communicate life lessons and crucial equanimity, the program will create a routine that inspires trust and cooperation between the kids, the dancers and the staff. The Flex Program promotes creativity, keeps youth socially engaged and mindful, provides them with a sense of pride and fosters success. By providing a positive outlet through recreation for self-expression, the program aims to help participants find healthier solutions to conflict and curb recidivism.
