Initiate the change
We need your support to help provide quality programs to teens in the Chicago area as we develop innovative ways to connect the arts to business. Our afterschool programs provide teens a safe environment to express their frustrations, dreams and thoughts about the world through the creative arts. Your donation would help NLS Creators fund field trips and events for teens in our program.
Our field trips are multimedia experiences that allow students to learn through interacting with the real world of production. We took a group of students on a tour of NBC in downtown Chicago and they were able to see behind the scenes of the whole production process. One student expressed interest in becoming a top female director after hearing there are few female directors in the field. Another student was inspired by the technological aspect of the field trip and expressed interest in becoming a broadcasting technician.
Our goal is to motivate the next generation of creative entrepreneurs. Without your help this can not be possible. On behalf of all of our NLS Creators, our teens and staff we thank you very much for your support.
