Performance Program Gets Grant For Kids
One of the Florida's oldest Theater's will be providing some new programs thanks to a donation today. The State Farm Insurance Foundation awarded the theater more than seventy six thousand dollars for it's teen education and prevention program.
The H.I.T.T. project as it is called is a learning project where students in middle and high schools use the theater to create live performances as well as public service announcements.
They cover topics critical to young adults such as anti-drug programs.
In addition to spreading awareness in the community, the program builds confidence and character for at risk kids by having them create and perform their own PSA's. The program depends completely on grants and as the federal government tightens their purse strings, the hippodrome is depending more and more on private donations.
