Mission Statement

DASH Center for the Arts provides quality performing arts instruction, education and mentoring to the underserved communities and lower income families of Tacoma-Pierce County, offering programs to directly counteract gang and drug influences and empower inner city youth through honesty, positivity, and creativity.

Description

The D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts focuses sharply on culture and the arts to improve the lives of children and families across Tacoma-Pierce County, particularly those underserved. What sets DASH apart is that its youth programs are truly of interest to kids of all ages and they engender in them an active desire to participate, which makes the agency highly effective. The Hilltop Community, where DASH is located, is one that carries with it problems from its past of poverty and gang activity, but it’s transitioning and needs the support of local agencies to help it do so, to break those cycles of poverty and criminality. Just as schools have profound impacts on their communities because they are responsible for the education, upbringing and development of youth, so extracurricular programming targeted toward the support, advancement and success of youth, also impact their communities. DASH nurtures its future contributors!
