Mission Statement

Artists Striving To End Poverty (ASTEP) uses the arts as a tool to empower young people with creativity, knowledge, and a strong sense of self-esteem, factors which help them advance their lives and communities. At ASTEP, we provide artists with opportunities to connect with global youths, allowing them to use their gifts to create meaningful and effective change for young people in need.

Description

ASTEP's main goal is to create a community of artists who are actively engaged in using their talents to raise awareness about the plight of the children we serve and to dynamically assist by volunteering at our programs.

ASTEP's hope is to cultivate safe spaces in these communities where these children can learn to communicate, express, and develop constructive decision-making skills by using the arts as a catalyst and by interacting with our participating volunteer artists/teachers and local partnering organizations. Topics covered range from self-empowerment and positive future-building to HIV/AIDS awareness.

Artists from all over the globe (including recent and current Juilliard, New York University, Miami University, Furman University, Santa Clara University students), Broadway professionals, and local talent serve as volunteer teachers for ASTEP.
