A 'Pivotal' Generation Headed the Wrong Way
Researchers are only just beginning to understand Generation Z. Now being called the "pivotal" generation, those born after 1995
They're well connected and have never known life without the Internet. But such an immersion in media has proven to blur their worldviews
It's a bold statement, but it's true. Growing reports show that mentally, they are unstimulated. Physically, they are unhealthy. Emotionally, they are unheard. And spiritually, they are unfulfilled. In both a literal and figurative sense—Generation Z (those born after 1995) is dying.
Despite more technology, more advancement and greater opportunity—somehow we've left Generation Z behind to fend for themselves. Many don't understand them and so, they are disregarded as the youngsters who don't have or need a voice.
BUT—their potential far outweighs any other generation. They are lively, social, savvy, innovative, relationship-driven and cause oriented. So what if more people poured into that potential and resonated with the things they care about? What if Generation Z ushered in a movement of change we've all been in search of?
Whether a 1-hour workshop or a weeklong camp, our programs are designed to do 3 things: educate, empower, and edify. By keeping this structure, we've seen consistent results that stick. Our goal is not just to teach creative arts, but to use the arts to connect young people to their Creator. When young people are empowered in purpose, that drive spills over into other areas.
Facing the Future
Why Creative Arts?
- Students who study art are 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and 3 times more likely to be awarded for school attendance.
