Movement City is a safe space for creative young people (ages 10 to 18) to explore and develop their talents and passions with a network of like-minded peers and supportive adult mentors. Movement City members engage in digital, performance, and visual arts, as well as technology, academic support, civic engagement and leadership development activities.

Movement City aspires to:

  • Create an environment that inspires, supports, and sustains young people’s growth and development
  • Connect young people to the tools, people, and other resources needed to embark on a career path that is poised for growth and success
  • Engage youth in local projects for community improvement that encourage them to improve the community and help them strengthen their leadership skills
  • To involve youth in a network of young people and families engaged in positive self and community development
