The Texan-French Alliance for the Arts is a proud founding partner of the “Be the Peace – Be the Hope” Educational and Healing Arts program. “Be the Peace Be the Hope” is a results-driven positive identity and leadership development arts integrated program that engages large number of children in at-risk environments (at-risk local schools, community centers, refugee camps) and aids in healing trauma, regaining hope, exploring strengths, and building a better future. We address emotional and social factors contributing to disengagement, delinquency, and academic failure. We also provide a platform that connect the youth with local and global communities (including refugee camps) so that they can be part of the positive change they wish to see in the world. We train the local teachers and follow up periodically to make sure the sustainability is ensured. The assessment results show a positive change in lives of hundreds of children in a very short time.
