Brooklyn Theatre Arts (BTA) and cultural education focused 501(c)3, I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D, are partnering with We Bee Spelling to fundraise for once-in-a-lifetime experience for 12 BTA students!

We are raising funds so we can send BTA students on an immersive learning experience in Cuba! Twelve, 10th graders from the Brooklyn Theatre of Arts High School, will travel to Cuba for 5 days and 4 nights. Their excursion will be filled with informative, interactive, fun site seeing adventures. The student travelers will document their experience daily throughout their trip with a provided I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D journal. The student travelers will be encouraged to share their written ideas/areas of interest in a nightly forum. This is to help ensure that information has been retained and the memories will last forever. The trip will end with a community service project in Cuba.
We're back hosting another bee with Preparing Leaders of Tomorrow (PLOT)!

PLOT is a mentoring program for at-risk youth between the ages of nine and twenty-one living in Brooklyn, New York. Many of our mentees were involved, or are at risk of becoming involved, in the juvenile or criminal justice system. PLOT distinguishes itself from other mentorship organizations by choosing mentors from the community with similar life experiences to PLOT’s mentees. PLOT’s mentors understand that a positive role model can maximize a youth’s potential for success.

Our current activities focus on elementary, middle and K-8 schools.
