Our Mission Statement
E.A.S., Inc. is committed to the personal, creative, and professional development of aspiring young artists. We provide programs that develop professional and artistic skills in art, music and theater while increasing self-esteem, self-discipline, confidence, responsibility and commitment, thereby enabling them to establish clear pathways to life direction and make meaningful contributions to society.
Our goal is to develop a network of resources that young artists can positively explore which will allow them to take advantage of a range of opportunities that traditionally may not have been available to them.
E.A.S. seeks to implement a new Mentoring Ship Program that increases positive motivation in youth and adults faced with social and emotional dilemmas, thereby encouraging and guiding them into activities and experiences that establish sound ethical and moral values.
