Now through December 31, 2017, every dollar contributed to the Mesa Arts Center Foundation in support of Project Lit will be matched up to $10,000, thanks to a generous contribution from supporters Bill Passey and Maria Silva.
This unique program is one of Mesa Arts Center’s many Engagement Programs, working to bolster traditional literacy, 21st-Century job skills and resiliency in K-12 students.
Project Lit, offered in K-12 classrooms across the Valley, uses tools like Hip Hop, Drama, Improv and Spoken Word to build critical literacy in today’s youth. Project Lit creates a brave space for creative expression, allowing students to develop cultural, emotional and social literacy.
These programs have a significant impact on student success.
