About Us

The mission of Griot Youth Program is to create a community of students, teachers, and volunteers that work together to encourage creativity in order to enhance lives, neighborhoods, and communities. The Griot Youth Program is a place where students receive excellent teaching in the arts and are encouraged in their academic progress in order to enhance their lives and communities.

Description:
The Griot Youth Program is an after school program for students in public schools in Clarksdale in 7th-11th grades. A team of staff and volunteers provide mentoring, tutoring, and classes in art, music, dance and theater to a group of 18 students Monday through Thursday.

◦ We promote the arts as a tool to express ideas through exhibits and senior projects
◦ We foster educational discipline and excellence through tutoring
◦ We give back to the community through service projects
◦ We experience culture in different areas through field trips
◦ We develop relationships with positive role models through the mentoring program
◦ We encourage communication and collaboration amongst peers through the spring project
