Youth ArtBeat Afterschool Programs
Carpe Diem's Youth ArtBeat programs serve children from under-resourced communities and are located within several D.C. area housing developments. These programs are offered through creative partnerships with housing organizations, other non-profits, local public schools, and are made possible through grants and individual donor support.
The African Arts, Culture and Education (ACE) Academy after-school programs serving primarily African immigrant and refugee families in Takoma Park and Silver Spring, Maryland are funded by a 21st Century Community Learning Grant c/o Maryland State Department of Education, administered by the Community Preservation and Development Corporation. Additional funding for the Youth ArtBeat programs comes from a Wells Fargo Cultural Excellence Grant.
