The Prodigy® Cultural Arts Program uses an innovative approach to empower, educate and enable at-risk youth, providing a doorway to a better world. Youth ages five to 18 years of age experience performing and visual arts, taught as a tool for self-expression, to learn communication, exploration, problem solving, and conflict resolution skills. Established in 2000, Prodigy® is achieving its mission of transforming young lives and now reaches across five counties.
In compliance with Hillsborough County regulations, mask-wearing will be required.
