Help us reach our Fall 2019 Funding Goal!

100% of your donations go directly to the youth we serve! At Behailu Academy, we believe that art should be accessible - especially for our youth - no matter your background or circumstances. To ensure all youth have access to the arts, we seek to remove primary barriers to participation by offering high-quality after-school programming, and by providing transportation to and from the program at no cost to participants.

Art and the arts are not readily available to all youth in Charlotte, especially to those living in under-resourced communities and attending under-resourced schools. We focus on providing high-quality art instruction for these communities - at no cost. The students we serve typically could not afford private lessons or classes and may face other barriers, such as access to reliable transportation.

We’re always looking for art supplies to support our program. Email us at to find out more about donating supplies or click the button to donate!
