The Mitchenor Foundation recognizes the direct impact of Arts Education on children's academic achievement, self discipline, cognitive development, motor skills and graduation rates.
While most public schools provide little or no Arts Education, TMF reaches children who are in transient conditions with inconsistent housing and schools.
Our specific intention is to impact children living in homeless shelters and communities that are not afforded the opportunity of a traditional public or charter school Art Education. To date, we have served over 2,500 children across the world from the U.S. to Uganda, Africa.
Our curriculum incorporates Visual, Performing Arts and Healthy Living courses.
Through our long-range comprehensive programming, participants also develop communication and problem solving skills. Upon completion, children leave recognized for their skills and abilities, feeling empowered to fully express their individuality and inspired to implement the lessons they have learned with TMF.
Our unique Ambassadors Program allows children to become leaders in their communities, by sharing the core values and curriculum fundamentals of TMF with their peers and families.
