Moreover, our show series is in support of fashion arts which offers alternative activities to the underserved youth as a violence prevention strategy, as violence more particularly gun violence has continued to negatively impacts Chicago. We want to showcase the positive things that Chicago has to offer. Our organization offers positive alternative activities for youth involvement through our many programs in the arts, health and education. Through our arts showcase we work by including youth via our youth apprentice program. It gives a chance for underserved youth to gain experience they otherwise would not and provides them with the opportunity to work with our production professionals in the industry, to get hands on skills and to increase their awareness of the many facets education in the arts has to offer them.
