LADD Foundation Social inclusion outreach program strives to provide support for people who face barriers to arts participation. We offer multiple approaches to address the diverse spectrum of needs and abilities and provide opportunities for continued engagement and advancement within our recreational, after-school and pre-professional programs.
Our experience has shown us that cost is only one of the many barriers to arts access for underserved youth and we have recently expanded our programing to address the diversity of needs we see.
In our after-school program, we are looking to collaborate directly with social service partners, Miami Dade School board and other outreach programs to identify and support youth facing a variety of systemic barriers who are drawn to circus but need resources and a plan to be able to engage more fully with our programs. In addition to working with each student to co-create a training plan, our Social inclusion coordinator will be connecting students with resources as needed, including athletic wear, food, bus to and from the circus school, access to showers and personal hygiene items, mentorship, translation.
