Three Organizations Receive Funding for Youth Arts Programs

Focus Forward, Milestones Jazz, and Woodward Shakespeare are the latest CARC grant recipients

Three organizations received funding for youth arts programs totaling $2,400 over the past three weeks.  Focus Forward received $1,000 for their U-Turns Allowed magazine highlighting juvenile justice youth turning their lives around, Milestones Jazz received $900 to lower tuition for their youth jazz training program, and $500 went to Woodward Shakespeare to provide a stipend for a youth composer’s original song or incidental music for The Tempest production next summer.  Composers are picked through a judged contest.

Cultural Arts Rotary cultivates creativity through service.  Meeting every Tuesday noon at Arte Americas, funds are raised through fundraisers to benefit the community, with a particular focus on youth arts.
