Rhythm Child's Drum to Become Early Child Development Program, in partnership with Volunteers of America, is addressing the need for equal opportunities in early education and bringing a different learning environment to frequently under-served communities.
There are over 2 million children receiving government funded Head Start or Public Pre-K educational instruction. With such a large number being served, the budgets of funding agencies are restricted to basic necessities and don’t allow for many ancillary tools of development. Because the money is being stretched as far as it can go, both children and teachers at the centers desperately need additional resources to keep up with the escalating standards of education in other communities.
The objective is to provide funding for 25 Volunteer of America centers in Los Angeles County that currently work with Rhythm Child and eventually make the program available everywhere else in California, as well as the rest of the United States.
Rhythm Child creates an environment where children have the freedom to learn through their own perceptions. The children willingly participate in a fun musical activity while they unknowingly develop key life skills that will better prepare them for the future.
