The mission of Don’t Miss a Beat, Inc. is to blend music, art, academic achievement, and civic engagement to inspire and enlighten children and teens in the Riverside, Brooklyn and Woodstock communities.
To succeed in our mission we:
- Utilize the performing arts as a tool to facilitate youth development and to cultivate youth talent in the arts
- Provide tutoring and academic support, thereby enhancing youth educational achievement and graduation rates
- Conduct civic engagement projects so that youth develop a connection to community and learn how to be responsible, productive citizens
- Offer workable skills training for adults in the community so that they may become increasingly self-sufficient and therefore better able to provide a safe, healthy environment for their children
Through artistic discovery, we inspire families to bridge the gap for a better life.
