It’s our mission to create inspiring and enriching opportunities for youth to cultivate their full potential through the arts. The spark grant program is designed to connect young people to arts opportunities that fuel their creativity, education, and dreams.
We Want to Dance is committed to increasing access to quality arts opportunities and to supporting education milestones for young people in Los Angeles’ low-income communities. This spark grant is offered to schools, organizations, and groups seeking to launch new projects led by and that engage 2nd-12th grade youth in the arts and or that promote college/post-secondary education opportunities. More specifically, we seek to:
Challenge young people to develop and implement a youth-led project
Provide access to unique arts opportunities
Raise awareness of college and post-secondary education pathways
We Want to Dance offers $500 - $1000 grants to projects that best align with our mission. This will be determined by our advisory board members. Not all projects are funded.
