The Purpose of the organization is to improve the quality of life for community residents by implementing at-risk youth mentoring activities, educational support, and performing arts projects.
So You Want Your Name In Lights Youth Mentoring Program is an arts-focused, crime-prevention project designed to encourage under-served youth (ages 12-17) with making right choices while developing character, confidence, leadership, discipline, self-esteem, and positive life-skills. Workshops offered include financial literacy/budgeting, healthy lifestyles, entrepreneurship, and life-social skills/etiquette training activities that are non-duplicated in public schools settings. Music-related activities allow students to gain hands-on audio digital tech experience, basic piano, songwriting composition, music recording production, and talent showcase performance opportunities. Scholastic awards and prizes are given to showcase winners to support their chosen educational goals that may, or may not, necessarily be music/arts affiliated.
