Empowering youth and strengthening communities through music and the arts
Hope on a String operates a community center in the region of Arcahaie, Haiti that is a physical space for community engagement and empowerment through music and performing arts. We also provide music education classes at our partner schools in the Haitian education system. With Hope on a String, individuals participate in music, dance, and performance classes, as well as skill-building workshops and grassroots development initiatives that respond to community needs and goals. In our program, participants build hope, confidence, collective pride, powerful relationships, and skills needed to succeed. Local organizations build critical social capital, positive synergies, and collaborate on mutual goals that advance the community’s interests. Hope on a String invests in locally driven change, and ultimately seeks to have a long-term impact on a national level by developing a scalable model for social development in Haiti.
