Tessas Black Entertainment and Youth Center
Tessa’s Black Entertainment & Youth Center, Inc is a not-forprofit 501(C)3 tax-exempt arts & youth organization. Tessa’s Black Entertainment & Youth Center (TBEY) mission is to strengthens youth and young adults through exposure to the arts and opportunities for creative expression. Youth and young adults ages 6-19 receive professional arts instruction, enjoy performances and exhibits, and receive tutoring, mentoring and coaching to achieve academically and pursue their interest in the arts. We accomplish our mission: - Professional instruction and arts education is offered through after-school and summer programs allowing children and young adults to express and develop their unique talents in a culturally diverse offering of visual arts, dance, music and theatre programs. - Exposure to the arts through performances, attendance at arts performances, galleries and events and visits to professionals and instructors working in the arts inspires an appreciation of the arts. - Tutoring and mentoring is offered to students to ensure academic and personal growth success, and coaching is offered to students seeking secondary educational opportunities in the arts. Vision: Whether our students become artists themselves, work in an arts-related field, enjoy the arts as patrons or support the arts through donations, our vision is for the arts to contribute positively to young people’s lives. Our Model: Explore, Engage & Express TBEY offers education, information, and instruction with context and free expression with fundamentals. Our three-pronged approach: -Students explore variations within visual arts, dance, music and theatre through education - Students engage through professional instruction, as visitors to arts performances, galleries and events, visits to colleges and discussions with professionals who work in the arts. - Students express their individual unique talents through practice and performance.
