FAMA (Fine Arts Mentoring Amigos)

MENTORING at FAMA means constructive feedback and advice while supporting enthusiasm and interest through performing Fine Arts and Mentoring framework. All of which falls within DCET's Youth Leadership programming which is intended to inspire students' positive interests and goals while helping them maintain school attendance and classroom.

Ms. Flores is a great role model for the FAMA students, the  youth participants acts as mentors to an older person (mentee). 

FAMA students have the opportunity to build skills in self-advocacy and conflict resolution including: music and dance activities requiring participants to work with both adult leaders and peers in planning, organizing, leading, and accounting for public presentation(s) of arts/cultural event(s); and Junior DCET Board participation.  FAMA inspires positive interests and goals and help students maintain school attendance and classroom performance.

A unique win/win relationship: while parents and grandparents study literacy, FAMA children sing, dance and play musical instruments in an adjoining area. Through these activities, children and youth learn to process, analyze and respond to sensory information through performing movements in artistic expression while having a safe and positive environment while parents study.
