New Village Girls Academy is an all-female public charter high school in Los Angeles whose population consists of girls with significant gaps in their education and who typically have high academic and social-emotional needs. Many of these girls have experienced traumas such as trafficking, homelessness, domestic violence, incarceration, drug and substance abuse, sexual assault, and abandonment. We have developed a comprehensive arts program, which consists of art and art history classes, a dance team, a choir, a creative writing group, and fashion and beauty programs. This arts program teaches students both technical and transferable skills, with many of the lessons focusing on teaching the girls how to express themselves, how to be vulnerable, how to love themselves, and how to create without judgment.
Fashion & Art Supplies Campaign
The goal of this campaign is to collect art supplies for the Fashion & Art students. The teachers are given a limited budget to get supplies for all the students. Some of these students end up bringing their own supplies and some are left without any supplies. We want all of these students to have a chance to create something they are proud of.
