Help us support our kids

This year, the Prodigy Cultural Arts Program is undergoing a historic reduction in our state funding

With our 17th year underway, Prodigy has now reached over 25,000 youth served. Our program touts an impressive annual savings of $160 million for the Florida juvenile justice system with 98% of our students reporting they have not gotten in trouble since their enrollment. An upcoming funding reduction will decrease our budget by 80%. As a result, more than 2000 students from across six counties will be impacted. 

We need your help to keep our program strong. Please join us by contributing in one or all the following ways:

- Be a donor by making a sizable donation to help fund Prodigy sites and community projects

- Connect us to new funding opportunities

- Help garner support from city, county and state lawmakers

Our program works. Every day we contribute to the livelihood of our youth and their families through life skills enrichment, academic support and wrap around services. So, please, help us continue to transform young lives by joining our village. Together we can be a voice of many who assure our children succeed.  

For more information about how you can help, please call Prodigy Director Mike Trepper at  813-558-5212 ext. 313.
