WHO WE ARE
U.L.E is a 501c3 non-profit organization that allows students to gain hands on experience in a variety of art-based programs.
Our mission is to educate, inform and enlighten the youth focusing on development and arts education.
To be a positive influence that provides professional services to enhance the way children learn through arts, entertainment and education.
Our youth needs influencers, mentors, and leaders that are willing to shift their paradigm in relation to today's era of digital influence. Social media and digital media make a huge impact on the relationships and attitudes of our youth. They are becoming programed to normalize violence, promiscuity, self-hate, and bullying because of the lack of social responsibility and open dialogue from those who can communicate and speak the new era language of creativity.
We believe that through creative arts we can reach our youth as change agents who have not only lived and represented what has impacted our youth , but has made conscious change to shift our focus and develop from a relative prospective of experience.
