At Arts Council Northeast's Summer Arts College, kids ages 6–15 embrace their inner artisans during classes on the visual arts, set design, and performance. Students arrive at Crown of Life Lutheran School each morning for five full-day (9 a.m.–3:30 p.m.) aesthetics-building sessions. In From Trash to Treasure, students repurpose useless items into a green masterpiece, as discarded movie stubs, plastics, and Cable Ace Awards find new life on the canvas. Drawing on the sketches and ideas of the children, mosaic classes combine their previous works into a wondrously motley mélange. Drama classes unlock the excitement of staging live theater, as kids explore acting through improvisation, monologues, and short scenes while learning the finer details of songwriting and playwriting. Between blocking movements and testing newly built trapdoors, drama-loving kids craft sets before performing a play they've written for friends and family on the last day of camp.

The name encompasses not only the mission, but the scope as well. Kids Matter International works to show children that they are important even if they live in poverty—even if they were abandoned or orphaned—setting their sights as close to home as Northern Texas and as far away as India and Honduras. In Texas, its work is apparent in children heading to school with new clothing and supplies. In India, an orphanage gives children a home through political unrest and natural disaster. And in Honduras, the organization provides transitional housing for young girls who have faced abuse.
Yet the people behind Kids Matter International know that when facing a foe as intractable as childhood poverty, no one can solve the problem alone. That’s why the organization—which comprises just four full-time staff members—teams up with hundreds of volunteers and dozens of corporate partners to put on programs that directly benefit disadvantaged children.

Melanie has been active in the health community—as a fitness consultant, personal training, and yoga and Pilates teacher—for more than 14 years. But it wasn’t until she discovered pole fitness while mining that she was able to combine all her passions into one activity. As she started experimenting with pole fitness, she felt her experience with yoga, Pilates, and fitness classes coming together into one comprehensive workout. She knew that with her background in health and fitness, and passion for pole fitness, she would be able to help students achieve their fitness goals. And so PoleFIT Revolution was born. Today, she and a team of instructors teach a variety of classes, such as pole fitness, aerial yoga, boot camp, and stretching classes to ensure all students are receiving the workout that best suits their body.
