ABOUT the Fostering Arts-Mind Education Foundation
The Fostering Arts-Mind Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit education organization, created in 2000, focuses on improving how children learn, and how teachers and parents teach.
Our goal is to expand the success of children, their families, and teachers through the integration of Artistic and Holistic Life Learning Techniques; and to broaden their imagination in the classroom and at home.
Our efforts focus on at-risk urban and rural youth, pre-k through
grade 12. Unique in many ways, this foundation integrates different
modalities of learning found in Life Learning techniques to address
the following areas:
Improve the academic achievement of at-risk children and engage in the statistically validated documentation of outcomes and causal links.
Engage in positive youth development through the teaching of Life Learning Techniques. This includes developing a mentor-coach relationship while teaching leadership skills, personality recognition and the crafting of one’s vision.
Exposing at-risk rural youth to a variety of musical styles and cultures
via distance learning technology.
1. Educational Achievement.
Additionally, research shows that our techniques affect the health of all ages in a positive way. Reduced stress and a broader and happier approach to life in general are the kinds of by products our children, teachers, and parents are experiencing. Knowledge, which is understood and experienced, is powerful. Guiding children, teachers, and parents to see themselves as champions is one of the first steps in creating life long learners. Expanding their imagination is the next step in showing them how to “strive for excellence” as a way of life.
