Day Stage Performance: Nehemiah Project from 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Tender Hearts Crusades (THC) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that has a heart to impact the lives of inner city youth at risk. Through mentoring programs, our goal is to cultivate our future generation and help them to develop social and personal skills. We offer students the opportunity to prepare for further academic success through tutorial (i.e. STEM) and reading (e.g. math/reading literacy) programs. In order to take the negative energy that is common to this select group of individuals and turn it into something productive, we use music and arts programs as an innovative technique to redirect and promote productive members of society. THC’s community service program seeks to enhance the community through community involvement. THC’s programs are accessible to all youth, targeting ages 8-15. By allowing students to feel as if they have a voice, we can continue to make great strides in our educational institutions as well as community initiatives.

The Nehemiah Project is a 3-week arts enrichment program created by Cleveland School of the Arts (CSA) and Juilliard School alum Nehemiah Spencer, who is currently a professional dancer with Complexions Contemporary Dance Ballet. It provides a safe environment for students, especially those perceived to be "different". In doing so, its long-term program objective is to equip students with the tools they need to follow their dream(s). This requires us creating an ongoing support system that is inclusive and promotes pro-social friendships between students and community members as a short-term regimen with a long-term return; thus, "building dreams, one step at a time". The Nehemiah Project .  Our goal is to coordinate a diversity program from June 12-July 1, 2017, that brings together at risk students, targeting middle and high school youth. In partnering with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s All-City Arts program and the Cleveland School of the Arts, University Circle Inc., Dee Jay Doc and the Fresh Camp, student-led diversity groups, and law enforcement agencies our program will culminate on July 1 (tentative date) at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum into a public music presentation, which will present a creative demonstration that's entertaining, fun, and inspires diversity. By encouraging pro-social friendships, students are able to recognize and appreciate others and their differences while building self-esteem through social and emotional learning (SEL) intervention.
