UAP's Impact On Children
Urban Arts Program believes that creativity is the key to engaging and inspiring young people. With the funds they have received from various sponsors, and fundraisers, they have been able to keep programs running that have impacted many lives for the better. With results like improving grades, and 100% high school graduations, there is no doubt that UAP has made a life long change for many students.
Urban Arts Program believes in equal opportunities in the arts for every child, so they created the Everyday Arts for Special Education program, which works directly with children who have mental disabilities. EASE is a professional development program designed to improve student achievements in the areas of communication, socialization, academic learning, and art proficiency through arts-integration strategies.
There Are No Limits In Teaching
Coding means much more than just a cluster of characters slapped together on a screen for UAP’s instructor, Jamel Mims. Getting a group of students to concentrate sometimes can be difficult, unless a teacher makes a fun lecture. Mims put a twist on his lectures and decided to rap information about HTML and CSS. If that wasn’t fun enough, the UAP instructor, adds cell phones and technologies that are a desirable aspect of youth culture because he believes there are no limits to teaching.
