At DAREarts, we provide children and youth from under-served communities with the opportunity for a turning point. Specifically focused on working with young people who are facing significant challenges to reaching their full potential, our programs serve as a critical intervention point for young people - giving them the chance to hit the reset button in a supportive, accessible and skills-focused environment. Through exploring and creating with the arts, students develop their own unique voice, share and connect with their peers and build their capacity to create positive change in their lives and in their communities. Since 1995, we've helped over 20,000 young people find their inner leader and we're just getting started. With partnerships with over 50 schools coast to coast and programs designed to support young people from early learning to high school graduation, we are committed to making sure under-served youth across Canada have the support they need to thrive.
