Wilson’s World: Learning More About The Arts Empowerment Project at CPCC
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Wilson was on the campus of Central Piedmont Community College where he was learning more about The Arts Empowerment Project that helps transform the lives of children who are impacted by neglect and abuse.
Natalie Allen, Executive Director, and Javier Negrete, a volunteer, took time out from their work with the group this morning to talk with Wilson about the project and the mission behind it. Wilson also presented his latest ‘Wilson’s Moment of Good’ award to a hard working Javier.
The Arts Empowerment Project was started by attorneys along with their staff, the Department of Social Services, the Department of Juvenile Justice and Guardian Ad Litem and licensed counselors to identify children who exhibit the most potential for the project.
The project was created with the determination that abused children can mend their spirits and life through the arts and find a positive way to learn life skills and re-direction in their life. Programs in the project included are form of arts, from music and clayworks to culinary and photography.
Donations are extremely important to the project. Get more information on the project and how you can donate or volunteer at their website theartsempowermentproject.org.
