The Creative Arts Program for youth focuses on meeting the need for positive social activities for the young people in San Jose's downtown neighborhood. The church's strong belief that the involvement in creative outlets builds competency, self-esteem, and pro-social activities has helped facilitate a thriving a beautiful program for low-income families. The current focus of our program is on the performing arts: music, dance and drama, and the current mission of our program is to strengthen our community by serving young people through creative arts.
The goals of the program are to foster positive changes in attitude and behavior; facilitate development of better interpersonal skills; develop a sense of belonging, responsibility and community; support growth of healthy problem-solving and learning strategies; foster increased self-esteem, teamwork and life skills.
