Non-profit Note: FREEDOM ARTS & EDUCATION CENTER, finding the tools for the Youth

A look at non-profit organization Freedom Arts & Education Center, helping black and brown youth with more accessibility.


The Argus St. Louis is always up for the cause, by bringing to the community, the non-profit organizations that are making a difference with our youth. I had the pleasure of discovering this team of educated thinkers, who are solely bent on building foundations for SLPS students and the underserved.

Our Mission

Freedom Arts & Education Center creates artistic, academic, and advancement opportunities to feed, heal, and teach the youth of St. Louis. By removing systemic barriers and building resourced spaces, Black and Brown youth realize their own power to become highly creative, literate, passionate, independent thinkers. Since 2012, we have supported youth through accessible community arts programs, decolonized educational resources, enriching multidiscipline summer programs, in-school advocacy, and job opportunities.

Our Vision

Creating artistic, academic, and advancement opportunities to feed, heal, and teach the youth of St. Louis.

Our Values

Our values begin with our foundation and tradition of faith. We find our purpose and tenacity in these Biblical passages: 

“For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” 

(Galatians 5:13-14) 

“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” 

(Micah 6:8)
