Sports, Performing Arts, and Philanthropy

Allowing the opportunity for youth to participate in sports or performing arts, despite their economic background, is a philanthropic effort. Young people benefit greatly from sports and the performing arts and the opportunity for extra-curricular activities help them grow in their understanding of giving and generosity; life skills necessary to promote a giving and caring culture.

This Trending blog informs about how sports and the performing arts in education positively impact youth; and how you can bring both to the classroom experience. Using these activities, students will be exposed to sports and the performing arts in an academic setting, which can inspire them to look beyond the classroom to find an activity that peaks their interest.
