Reason #13: Art + Nature + Our Support = Lives Touched and Changed

On days when the weather isn’t too cold or wet, members of our Street Potential program head outside to paint.

What better place to escape the pressures of the streets than a place like Jamaica Pond?

Street Potential is an after-school program for  youth who are committed to the Department of Youth Services. Who have spent time locked up and who know the pressures of the streets all too well.  We work with them on educational and vocational goals. But through painting and creating hip hop music, we start with the deep work that will help them achieve those goals.

The heart at the center of the painting says it all, doesn’t it? That’s the deep work — and the world’s best reason to give.

Thanks for showing our Street Potential members your love.
