Project Everybody Dance Now!

Location Santa Barbara, CA

Issue Area Mental Health & Emotional Support

Jackie had a keen awareness that self-confidence is critical for all teens. This insight motivated Jackie to create Everybody Dance Now!, a dance program that provides students of all backgrounds with a positive outlet for self-expression. Programming includes opportunities for participants to develop a greater sense of self-esteem and a commitment to community engagement and community service.

Teenagers can be leaders right now.
