Project Description

Rhythm Arts Alliance creates a supportive community for at-risk youth to express their unique stories, process trauma, and build empathy through drum, dance and song.

We seek to empower our youth to be productive members of society, foster the skill of cooperation and provide a safe space for them to express their unique gifts and stories to the world. More often than not, when these youth experience a creative way out, they hold on to it with an intense fire. It is the young people’s spirit that keeps them fighting, but they don’t always have the support, skills or confidence to move past their struggles. Through the mediums of drum, dance and song presented through a trauma-informed council format, RAA strives to increase self confidence, decrease stress levels, and develop empathy and creative expression in our youth.

RAA, is a project of Community Partners, a nonprofit charity exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
