Live Life Loud

Live Life Loud serves females between the ages of 12-17 years.

The methodology is a three-prong approach to thriving which is designed to build their knowledge and skills to strengthen and escalate their self-esteem, minimize and/or eliminate high-risk sexual behavior, and provide alternative pathways to increase economic opportunities.

Live Life Loud follows a 30-week curriculum that identifies the strengths of each girl, outlines strong moral principles and empowers them to live to their full potential.

Bold Expressions

According to Brookings.edu a substantial increase in arts educational experiences has remarkable impacts on students’ academic, social, and emotional outcomes. In this study students experienced a 3.6 % point reduction in disciplinary infractions, an improvement of 13 % of a standard deviation in standardized writing scores, and an increase of 8 % of a standard deviation in their compassion for others. In terms of our measure of compassion for others, students who received more arts education experiences are more interested in how other people feel and more likely to want to help people who are treated badly.

Bold Expressions provides our students with an opportunity to explore the arts and develop creatively. ITHRIVE has partnered with local organizations and individuals to teach students the exciting world of Art, Dance and Fashion!
