StarSeed Project is youth outreach program that works within schools and correctional facilities to provide alternative art and music programs for creating stronger and more positive self images through music and poetry.
For well over 25 years, Ambessa Cantave and I have worked within several communities, schools and organizations throughout parts of The US utilizing art and music to positively impact the lives of youth/children ranging from the ages of 1.5 to 19 years old and more. It has long been held as a desire of our hearts and spirits to teach youth how to not only improve their lives in different ways but begin to take power over it and reshape their own reality from within.
WE believe deeply that one of the core essential things that youth today are having trouble accessing is resources, tools, and mainly devoted teachers/mentors who dedicate their time to creating and encouraging nurturing and safe spaces for them to learn to express their true selves let alone learn who they are as well!
So our goal is simple, give them the resources and tools by devoting time to create these opportunities with them.
This will be achieved by combining and utilizing the science of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy , Self Love and Self Mastery and interweaving exercises in Meditation, Visualization and Breathing Techniques, then teaching students about the elements of Song/Spoken Word/Poetry Writing and Basic Recording Music Production. The ultimate goal to usher in a safe and nurturing space for self expression as well as self discovery.
WE desire to see them see the greatness in their beings.
That's where this fundraiser and more importantly , you, the donors come into the picture!
With your donation, we will not only be able to acquire the necessary equipment to create a mobile unit (or multiple) with music production and recording equipment, acquire all teaching supplies such as writing material, notebooks, and as well meditation mats but as well as fund the program to the point of providing it as as free service to the communities that need it the most.
