FOSTER CARE REALITIES
Seen&Heard exists to develop the professional character of foster and disconnected youth through performing arts training
“Arts-engaged low-income students were more likely than their non-arts-engaged peers to have attended and done well in college, obtained employment, volunteered in their communities, and participated in the political process by voting. Findings suggest that the arts’ role in developing competency may be especially important for students who otherwise feel isolated or excluded.”
