Governor’s Project: Crafting A Brighter Future

Description

This year’s Governor’s Project is Crafting A Brighter Future, and it is a project geared towards promoting arts and creativity within the youth population. Art allows for self-expression and has several emotional and psychological benefits. There has been a recent lack of funding in art education in public schools across the nation. Crafting A Brighter Future aims to target this issue through various service projects and activities to help promote art among the youth. We hope to encourage T-O to serve creatively and promote art within their schools and community!
