Faith Foundation Resources (FFR) is pleased to announce it has received a grant from Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA). These funds will support the Teen Power Program.
The Teen Power Program is FFR’s HIV/human trafficking awareness performing arts program. It provides professional drama training to youth and young adults ages 16-24. Participants learn about giving depth to characters and the breaking down of a script.
They will study scenes and master confidence on stage as they learn and perform FFR’s play “If Only for One Night.” Students will have the chance to work on monologues that will become part of their performance repertoire. The piece will be used for script analysis and interpretation, character development and discussion-while bringing awareness to this very important subject matter.
Michigan ranks seventh highest among states in regards to human trafficking, and youth aged 13 to 19 accounted for an estimated 26 percent of all new HIV infections in the United States in 2016. FFR is looking forward to bringing fine arts as well as awareness to Flint and Genesee County thanks to MCACA.
FFR will be looking for teen and young adult actors and actresses beginning April 2020. Faith Foundation Resources is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to providing low income and at-risk individuals tools to get to the next stage in life. The organization serves teens and young adults in Illinois and throughout Genesee County.
