Help us help our youth by becoming a donor!
Your donation will go toward scholarships for children, whose financially struggling families don't have the ability to pay, in Positive Performing Arts Association's programs or our Partner Schools, Studios, or Instructor's programs.
PPAA utilizes the discipline and passion of the performing arts to motivate at-risk youth and young adults to make positive changes in their lives.
We combine the teaching of the Arts with life skills education and programs designed to keep them on track, or to get them back on the right track.
Besides professional Arts education in dance, drama, and other art forms, we offer mentoring programs, drug awareness education, life skills education, and partner with other programs all designed to assist our students in reaching their full potential.
As our students progress in our program, the older students will become leaders and mentors, upon qualification, to the younger students. We believe this cycle of student/leader/mentor will groom our students into the future leaders of our nation and the world.
We strive to bring balance into the lives of the youth and young adults in our program…physically, mentally, and spiritually, all of which the performing arts encompass.
With the lack of funding and willingness of our local and federal governments to provide resources for programs that can make a difference in the lives of kids, it becomes ever so important for individuals and businesses to step up to the plate and help fund programs that are making differences in the lives of our youth and young adults.

We know your hearts! Most of you would let all children come to your classes for free if you could. The problem is...this is your business, and you can not stay in business long if you are not being paid.Therefore, most of the youth that you teach come from families that can pay. The lower income children often get left out. Yet, these are the youth that need positive arts programs the most.We have the perfect solution! Utilize the non-profit status and influence of Positive Performing Arts Association by going to your local and regional businesses and talk to them about donating to Positive Performing Arts Association to provide scholarships in your program to financially challenged youth.80% of the donation goes to your program for low income youth scholarships and 20% to further the vision of Positive Performing Arts Association. The business gets a tax-deduction while helping a worthy cause.It's a win-win for everyone!
