In developing an approach to gang violence prevention that incorporates arts education, CSS looked at what other communities were doing to see what we could possibly utilize in a pursuit tailored to meet the specific needs of our community (A special thanks is due to DREAMS of Wilmington for their immense generosity during this process). From that search, ArtXecute was born.
The mission of ArtXecute is to deliberately utilize arts education to help at-risk and justice-involved youth to build positive community, nurture healthy social-emotional skills and provide delinquency prevention education.
Youth ages 8 to 18 who are currently enrolled in a school in Wayne County. Preference will be given to low-income, at-risk and justice-involved youth.
