Our arts-based intervention motivates students from the inside, so they can improve themselves and repair the world. They no longer think of themselves as merely pupils or consumers, but revise their self-image to be creators, innovators, change-makers. We advocate that every child should be schooled and raised as a creative and empathic problem-solver, a compassionate entrepreneur, an able peace-maker.

Founded in 1997 to serve American children as their national arts organization and the world’s children as their international arts organization, the ICAF ranks today among the 25 Top Children’s Charities in the United States.
