Description

The Annual Sky Kids Creative Arts in Action Fundraiser Benefit on THURSDAY MARCH 5TH @ 6:00PM is the kick-off event to a great weekend of power-packed arts training and community outreach hosted and produced by Long Beach Unity Festival (LBUF) Inc. in collaboration with Spirit of Praise International, Cabrillo High School, and the Long Beach Unified School District. The Event will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Long Beach Unity Festival organization in preparation for the city-wide Community Festival on SATURDAY MARCH 7TH 9AM-4PM at Cabrillo HS.

All proceeds from this benefit celebration will go to the expansion of LBUF after school programming at 8 LBUSD elementary schools, and one High School. Expansion needs include staffing, supplies, teaching materials, services, projects, and training activities for all registered 2020 Sky Kids participants in Long Beach, and the launch of the first LBUF Sky Kids International Creative Arts Program in Kingston, Jamaica.

What is the Sky Kids Program?

LBUF SKY KIDS CREATIVE ARTS IN ACTION is in residence at 9 sites across Long Beach, CA. Operating four days per week (MON-THU), at each of the following locations: Northpointe Community Center (N.LB), Browning HS (Signal Hill), and in eight (8) LBUSD elementary schools including Starr King, Grant, Herrera, Lafayette, Garfield, Hudson, Edison, and Burbank Elementary Schools in collaboration with the LB Parks, Recreation, & Marine’s WRAP after-school program. The program features professional dance training, children’s theater, instrumentation, vocals, production, and creative writing for more than 300 youth ages 6-17. The program targets at-risk children and youth from diverse, multi-cultural, and under served communities.

Through Sky Kids, children are reached at an earlier age with quality, arts education and technical training that builds momentum & passion for the Arts, and assists in providing opportunities/resources to low-income families with gifted children.

The Results: Children and Youth are disciplined, developed, and equipped at an early age to embrace performing arts as a healthy means of creative self-expression, physical/spiritual well-being, and preparation for college-level Performing and Visual Arts majors.

Sky Kids is designed to build self-esteem, awareness, discipline, and enthusiasm for the Arts with a holistic approach that unites, heals, and inspires each child to success. Sky Kids is a joint collaborative effort between The Long Beach Unity Festival Inc., Spirit of Praise Sacred Artistry International, and The Dancer in Me Training Institute.
