El arte de mejorar futuros / The Art of a Better Tomorrow
Arts that heal, transform and empower youth on both sides of the border
Arts for a Better Tomorrow (ABT) is a life-changing, innovative initiative that boldly refuses to accept the status quo for underprivileged youth.
Founded by an award-winning professional actor and humanitarian Jose Yenque, ABT harnesses the transformational and healing powers of the arts, to effect real change, teach life skills that offer positive paths to the future. Thanks to a dedicated team of talented and generous artists, educators, and college students, at-risk youth from both Mexican orphanages and U.S. inner cities are linked up and empowered by their hands-on exposure to the visual and performing arts. Whether it be writing, performing, and producing their own creative short films, music videos, and public service announcements, or designing and painting murals that beautify their community, arts of all kinds are combined with specialized instruction in life skills, leading to increased independence and leadership among the youth, and hope to accomplish their dreams.
