Hope on a String

PO Box 714 , Bedford Hills, NY 10507

Hope on a String works to engage and empower youth in Haiti under the firmly held belief that the arts are a tool for social change. Through Hope on a String, individuals participate in a wide variety of music classes, instrument lessons, performance groups, theater and dance initiatives, and critical skill-building workshops. Participants work to build individual confidence, collective pride, powerful relationships, and skills needed to succeed as leaders within the community. Ultimately, participants are helped to identify and fulfill aspirations that create brighter futures for themselves, their families, and their neighborhoods. The program invests in locally driven change, and seeks to have a long-term impact on a national level by developing a scalable model for social development in Haiti.
