To create scholarships for 10 at risk students recommended by school music teachers. 

• To expand and reach out to a larger population. 

• To collaborate with community groups in addition to PUSH Physical Theater.

We are considering a collaboration with Drama Kids International.   

We are also forming a Select Choir to present 2 programs per year in the community.   

We are excited that our program will be expanding to include a dietician working with the students on Wednesdays (1:30 –3:30) to prepare healthy meals. We also received a grant to offer Tae Kwon Do on Wednesday afternoons as well (4:00 – 5:15.)

Resources Needed:   

Grant Writer to seek funding through grants & community partnerships.

Funders for summer camp to support 2 summer camp slots per week for school-age student participating from the RAIHN program. Total cost of summer camp slots is $125 per student per week ($1500 for two student for entire 6 weeks.)

Upgrading the tables and chairs is a real concern, because the chairs collapse if children do not sit on them exactly right.

Volunteers Needed:

Tutors  --Wednesday afternoons.  Flexible timing. 

Presenters willing to share their interests and hobbies with the children. 

Business Manager to help with collection, budgeting and writing reports.
