PURPOSE

PURPOSE.

Our purpose is to encourage youth to be their own greatest influence and become an asset society through community building. 

 

Today’s youth are the most exposed to societal influences as social media has become their greatest source of finding identity and socially acceptable norms. Although virtual realities can be of benefit, we must empower our youth to become their own greatest influence and become an asset society through community building. The legal age to create a social media profile is 13 years old, but according to Fox News, at least 38% of children 12 years or younger use social media. The virtual world can be impressionable on one’s self-esteem at any age; however, our youth should not have to face emotional and mental harm at a time in their life when social interactions deeply affect their growth as an individual in society. 

 

In being part of a performance and production based group, youth are able to improve their social emotional learning and receive an opportunity to learn advanced skills such as project management, work readiness and financial literacy.

Our programs have already had a positive impact on many lives, and we are determined to keep building a strong community in Detroit for kids. We invite anyone interested in joining us in this effort to reach out and find out how they can help make a difference.

Our programs are open to all students, regardless of background or experience, and are designed to make sure everyone is given the opportunity to build their skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Key Activities 

As of now, we have 8 clients and 3 partners in our network. In the next year, we are looking to expand the network through the following initiatives: 

 

  • STEP Clinic is an opportunity for youth to learn about step dance performance and connect with PSTEP members to see if the organization is best for their personal interests 

  • PSTEP Family Night is an event that allows our network and friends to build meaningful connections with each other, learn about the organization and provide resources that can elevate the success of our community. 

  • Annual Spring Showcase is hosted by our organization to provide a space for youth performance groups in the regional area to display their unique talents. 

  • Community Cookout is a fundraising initiative that serves as a kick-off for the program year. The day is led by our youth with the goal of raising proceeds for general operating funds. 

  • Project F.E.E.D. is a community service initiative encouraging youth to give back to those with special needs (i.e. poverty, disabilities) as an opportunity to learn gratitude and stewardship. 

  • Special Workshops provide an experiential learning experience for youth based on their personal and professional interests. For 4 to 6 weeks at a time, youth will practice/shadow a traditional or nontraditional workspace that supports their career exploration journey.
