Youth who are engaged in arts programs do better in school and in their personal lives. Participation in the Arts promotes self-expression.
Through the arts young people gain the confidence, self-esteem and leadership abilities, to understand problems that problems may have multiple solutions. They are also able to put their ideas, thoughts and feelings into concrete and abstract forms while gaining the self-motivation needed to reach their full potential. Through the BGCSM’s programming for youth ages 5 – 18, the arts help our members excel!
