A PLACE TO BE(AD) ME

A Place to Be(ad) Me, adds a unique, enriching, jewelry making course to already established youth

creative arts programs throughout the US.

 

 A Place to Be(ad) Me is a multi week course which encourages confidence and creativity in children currently

experiencing the burden and stressors of a tumultuous home life.

Our program, while geared towards younger minds and skill sets, is not just another arts and crafts session -

 

 “It is a place where children can feel unencumbered, a sense of freedom, improved autonomy, increased esteem

and clear recognition of worth, while creating for themselves and others – all through A Place toBe(ad) Me.  

- Susan Foster, Founder
