To create innovative arts-based programs that help youth solve pressing social problems through collaborative efforts that emphasize the value of each individual.
What it means:
We're adults helping kids to help kids. We bring together young people to help their peers (and sometimes parents) solve tough problems such as bullying, teen driver safety and teenage social isolation -- issues where we can offer our experience and expertise. Together we create and implement all-original programs that reduce these problems while strengthening respect for the individual and promoting self-value. We call our unique approach "shared value."
