DAREarts was born out of the vision that every child deserves to see excellence in themselves and every child deserves the opportunity to experience the transformational power of the arts. Today, through partnerships with over 50 schools across Canada, DAREarts provides young people with the opportunity to create a turning point in their lives.
Our programs disrupt common conceptions of youth leadership development. Instead of focusing on young people that have already demonstrated their leadership capacity, we see our programs as a critical intervention for children and youth who, for many reasons, may never consider themselves as leaders without support. We believe leaders aren't born, they're grown and as such, we create a learning environment where participants can develop the skills, behaviors and confidence they need to see themselves as capable of making positive change in their own lives and in their communities.
Through exploring and creating with the arts, students develop their own unique voice, share and connect with their peers and build their capacity to be change makers. Each activity is designed to provide hands-on opportunities to build and practice the following core skills that underpin leadership: communication and self-expression; self-regulation; collaboration/teamwork; time-management; conflict resolution; problem-solving and critical thinking, while building their confidence, self-esteem and resiliency.
