Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc. is your contribution towards a much needed solution to the challenges of life and pitfalls of the 21st century. Creative Empowerment Inc. believes that the task at hand calls for solutions that are not ordinarily thought of as viable and effective by others outside the area of the arts.
As artists, they are forever taking on challenges as they create something out of nothing, as they seize upon opportunities to create the tangible and aesthetic which even though not, preconceived, takes its rightful place in this world. Creative Empowerment neither entertains nor tolerates the term ‘obstacle’ in their lexicon of life.
Creative Empowerment believes in and values the idea of working collaboratively with teaching artists and other professionals and experts to provide arts-centered solutions to life’s problems. They believe that assisting youth and parents in practicing creative ways of identifying, developing, and creating self-help solutions to relevant issues that affect them will result in improvement in the areas of personal development, multicultural and social acceptance/tolerance.
