Education & Youth Development
The Motivational Edge (TME) uses culturally relevant arts as a motivational platform to inspire youth toward academic achievement, increased self confidence and to build essential life skills. TME's unique programs integrate reading and writing skills with music instruction in innovative ways, which motivates and benefits our students. The Art of Creative Writing and Lyrical Expression includes a cutting edge writing component, which emphasizes different writing styles, types of poetry, and various forms of lyrical developments which improve performance in the classroom and on standardized tests. Success in school is a vital part of ME's mission, therefore, free tutoring is available for all youth, and is mandatory for students that want to participate in music and arts classes but are receiving a “C” or below in one or more core subjects in school. The youth currently served by The Motivational Edge are walking testaments that music is an extremely powerful learning tool when integrated into the academic setting.
