Cut It Out! x Lil Raggamuffin Summer Camp

make a difference...

Now in it’s fourth year, the Lil Raggamuffin Summer Camp (LRSC) is dedicated more than ever to making a difference for our youth. LRSC is an international youth development organization that creates programs focused on artistic self expression, experimental learning, youth leadership, holistic health, community organizing and entrepreneurialism. The LRSC is dedicated to “creating stronger communities by developing youth to be agents of social change.”

Our friends over at Born As A Raggamuffin need your help in funding the LRSC so they may continue to “inspire young people to believe in themselves, acquire the strength and resilience needed to assume the responsibilities of adulthood and the awareness to operate their lives from an authentic state of possibilities.”

Through arts workshops, team building exercises, rites of passage ceremonies, peer and adult discussion groups and a host of other activities, the camp helps youth to find their inner voice and reinforces the idea of community ownership and support. The Lil Raggamuffin Summer Camp has assembled a strong team of volunteers to teach workshops and provide positive mentorship for over 100 youth ranging in age from 6 - 16. Among the volunteers is an award winning international recording artist, dance choreographer, acclaimed artist, slam poetry champions and seasoned community activist.

This year’s camp will take place in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica from August 9-14. There is still time to make a difference so please help by making a donation.
