The Alliance for the Arts project will spearhead conversations on equity and access to the arts in African-American communities, beginning with Dunbar. The goal is to expand inclusion in the arts to populations who have been traditionally underserved, helping provide a space for self expression and enhance the quality of life in all communities.
The goal of this project is to provide basic support, student enrichment, and increase parent/family engagement at The Academy high school in Port Charlotte, where alternative education is provided for to at-risk teens. In addition, they provide services for teen parents and teens that have previously dropped out of school.
The “Learn what’s right, avoid the bite” campaign is a bite and scratch prevention program for the community in conjunction with the Lee County School District, the Florida Department of Health in Lee County and Lee Health. The project will provide education to reduce bites and scratches from dogs and cats. In addition, Lee County Domestic Animal Services will disseminate information on how to reduce the risk of your dog roaming at large and how to prevent bites and scratches from stray, unowned cats.
