Serving our students

      The Griffin Institute commits itself to community outreach and   youth development. This is done through the hosting of career days, mentoring   groups, and community performances. Although our programs will be open to the public, our focus will be   students and public schools in communities of need. We seek to provide instruction to at-risk   students and those that are unable to receive quality education. Staff members include certified and   non-certified teachers, artists and professionals from various occupations.   Volunteers, community members and business owners are encouraged to help   forward our mission of enhancing the lives of children through the performing   arts. These partnerships will assist   GIPA in creating valuable, creative, and relevant educational experiences for   our members.
