DMF Youth is extremely grateful for WellMet's support of our efforts to give underserved youth the arts enrichment, life skills and mentoring they need to thrive.”
DMF Youth’s mission is to create safe, nurturing afterschool and summer camp environments that focus on educating the whole child--fostering physical, mental and emotional well being. Its curriculum uses dance education as a platform for teaching youth about physical fitness, self-expression, cooperation and bravery. While its current sites are located in East Harlem, the Lower East Side and the South Bronx, DMF Youth’s goal is to serve as many schools and shelters in need across all boroughs as possible.
WellMet’s grant of $25,000 will be used to expand the 2017-18 afterschool and summer programs.
