Program Overview:

This curriculum explores themes of water, energy & land use, food production, waste management, transportation, buildings & cities through a multi-disciplinary approach:

Dance & Song Routines

Integrating scientific discovery with movement & song bridges multiple learning modalities, boosting cardiovascular, emotional & neurological health while inspiring creative thinking.

Theatrical Presentations

Using props & visual display boards, we get students off their screens to engage inter-personal connection through performances, games & activities.

Arts-Based Mentorship Program

Provides inspired students with networking & multi-media creative resources to spearhead environmental activism campaigns in their own communities. We pair our experience & expertise in film, audio, graphic design & mural productions to empower youth to be the change they wish to see in the world!

Meditation / Mindfulness Practices

The fast-paced & highly stimulating modern lifestyle can be a challenge for young people to adapt to! We strive to support youth with mental & emotional resilience through guided meditations & mindfulness practices for self-regulation.
