The Creative Arts Lounge and Media Center (The CALM Center) is a nonprofit art and media educational center which was developed for the underprivileged and at-risk students of Philadelphia. The CALM Center is intended to bridge the gap between art and technology on the path of entrepreneurship. Our vision is to be the gap filler that enhances artistic abilities for underprivileged students in preparation for job placement and entrepreneurship. Our Goal is to combat dropout and unemployment rates and prepare for job placements.
“Entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship. It drives everything: Job creation, poverty alleviation, innovation.”
We work with the community on a series software-based and hardware-based workshops to prepare them for entrepreneurship and job placement. We work in small group sizes for the increased personal development, problem-solving, focused attention, and addressing specific questions on what’s being learned.
The C.A.L.M. Center runs a free youth and adolescent program, while putting on charity events in the community. Your donation helps contribute to our give back initiatives. Moreover, Donations help keep the free programs free.
