Outreach to Quad City Metropolitan Area Youth
Art is vitally important in child development. Studies show that children gain developmental abilities such as motor skills, language development, concentration, decision making, visual learning, inventiveness, cultural awareness and improved academic performance, etc. When a child feels empowered, successful and optimistic, they are much more likely to succeed in life.
Youth Grant Program:
A large part of the Integrity: Arts & Culture Association mission is to encourage and support young people in their artistic endeavors through our grant program for at-risk and underserved youth. For more information about grant assistance for art, dance, drama or music classes, please contact us. It is our pleasure to assist whenever funds are available. Funds are paid from IACA directly to the school or private instructor for the student.
Youth Mentoring Program:
Our youth mentoring program allows us to provide young people with free field trips to artistic and educational venues and free IACA programming. It is also our goal to help equip our youth with the knowledge and skills to become well-rounded successful upstanding individuals. With drug, drop-out and teen pregnancy rates being so high, and the arts and extra-curricular activities being eliminated from schools, it is extremely important for us to help illuminiate a positive and meaningful pathway.
Send A Gift Of Love & Encouragement:
It means so much to youth that we believe in them enough to invest in their artistic endeavors. We have received the most beautiful appreciation letters from those we have supported in the past. However, we can't do it alone. If you believe in making a difference in the lives of young people, please partner with us in this endeavor.
