Project ABLE

 

(Art Brokers Learning Experiences)

 

To support Project ABLE, a comprehensive high-quality visual arts education program that integrates and couples mentoring, training, and internship assignments to develop students’ leadership and social entrepreneurial business skills. The program targets “under-resourced”, disconnected migrant youth ranging in age from 7-18, living in Fabens, Texas. The 2010 U.S. Census identified the community as having an average annual household income of approximately $8,204.00 for a family of four, thus categorizing it as among the lowest socio-economic areas in the United States.  The Texas Education Agency recently selected Project ABLE as a “Best-Practice” model; its program strategies will be disseminated through the state through the Expanded Learning Opportunities Council.
