About Kids Creative Kids Creative is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to foster confidence, creativity and conflict resolution through arts education programs. Through after school programs, summer camps and workshops, we use the creative arts as a vehicle to teach peace education. Our vision is that a better, more peaceful future can be brought about by those who, through the arts, have developed the creative, critical thinking and social skills necessary to make peace within themselves and in society.
How we work:
During our after school programs, summer camps and workshops, we use the creative arts as a space to teach peace education. Our ultimate goal is to build a school where youth are involved with peace education during their academic studies. Our main rule is, 'All ideas are good'. In other words, we show kids that they rock.
Our programs aim:
- To provide a fun, safe space for students of all ages, backgrounds and learning styles.
- To encourage anti-bullying techniques of creative conflict resolution, tolerance and appreciation for the ideas and beliefs of others.
- To instill a love of music and the arts in children.
- To build appreciation for children’s creativity in the general public.
- Creative freedom is essential for problem solving.
- We must value and encourage children's imaginations.
- Group collaboration is important for supporting individual skill building.
- Cultural awareness and sharing can help individuals build confidence in their community.
- We must understand and respect our environment.
- Every child has gifts and talents.
