Be a supporter of the Arts as an Art Ambassador. Your donation today will sponsor the development of a CAFE student’s artistic expressions by covering the cost of materials for classes and travel expenses for field trips to galleries and workshops.
Started in 2010, the CAFE debate quickly became an exciting component of the Saturday program with youth preparing to compete on the middle and high school levels in a competitive rally against their peers. CAFE has since moved on to participate in the Maryland State Bar Association Mock Trial Case and Competition. Your support will help to cover materials and travel expenses so our CAFE students can compete in this state wide competition.
Language Arts and Mathematics classes are alternated each week to provide students with hands on application of these core subjects. Your donation will ensure that a middle school or high school CAFE student can participate in this program for a full academic year.
For the past several years CAFE has been bestowed with the wonderful opportunity to perform in concerts and participate in workshops with Liam Teague, Robert Greenidge, Arturo Tappin, Etienne Charles, Victor Provost, Clifford Alexis, Renegades Steel Orchestra, Northern Illinois University Steelband and University of Delaware Steelband to name a few. These collaborations have been wonderful and unforgettable experiences for our students as they often have the opportunity to work behind the scenes to ensure a great event and personally interact with the guest artists. Our concerts, or productions, have been labeled as edu-tainment as we seek to not only engage audiences with music, but also with education about issues affecting the world today.
Positive Vibrations is the premiere performing ensemble of CAFE having been invited to perform in venues across the country and internationally. This generous support will go towards sponsoring a national or international tour that will help to expose our students to the world and inspire them to strive for the towards whatever goals they set for themselves.
