About Us

We've noticed that most youth struggle with their identity and want a safe environment to express themselves without judgement. They don't trust their current environment and feel lost, neglected, and uncertain of their future. We understand what it's like to not have a place where you feel you belong. That's why we're guiding youth towards a future they didn't realize they could have.

Our approach to high wellbeing improves academic outcomes, artistic growth, overall mental health, and community engagement. Using the arts, we address the needs of students, teachers, and parents through in-school and out-of-school mentoring that deliver service learning opportunities for youth development, academic enrichment, and career readiness.

Who We Are

Live2Create Foundation Network, Inc. is a
faith-based 501c3 nonprofit organization
created to promote social and emotional wellbeing in the lives of at-risk youth in the Greater Atlanta Community using the arts.

What We Do

We use the arts as a tool for identity formation, to educate and empower those at-risk to be confident in who they are and who they were created to be, so they'll face challenges with confidence and achieve success.

How We Do It

Through a network of teaching artists and community advocates, we partner with schools, industry creatives, and other community groups to provide mentoring, workshops, and annual events for youth development, academic enrichment, and career readiness.


Our curriculum focus on 6 core areas of development: Identity, Belief, Behavior, Environment, Capability and Purpose to
improve youth mindsets and increase
their self motivation.

Who Should Participate

Any youth age 10-17 interested in the arts and discovering who they are and who they were created to be; any parent or teacher interested in connecting their youth with a positive role model or building authenticity, resilience, and confidence in their youth; any school, faith institution, or community group interested in the expressive arts, a higher wellbeing, character development, or closing the achievement gap for youth in underserved communities.
