Art Classes Give At-Risk Students a New Outlook on Life
The Orange County Register covered the Crittenton Services for Children and Families and the Muckenthaler Cultural Center STEAM Program Partnership. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math and this program is designed to help system-involved youth build coping skills to regain control of their emotional well-being as it relates to psychological trauma. The partnership also assists youth with their high school graduation requirements. The partnership gives youth access to Muckenthaler artists that help youth build skill sets that may help with job readiness in the future. Courses also allow youth to earn high school credits towards graduation.
