Academy of Media Arts Story
Covid-19_ Health & Wellness Center
  Jun 04 2020 . 2009 W Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90062, USA

In response to COVID -19 and the social justice inequities that impact Academy of Media Arts (AMA) scholar’s social emotional needs, we are requesting support of AMA’s Health & Wellness center. Your support will enable AMA’s Health & Wellness center to provide services throughout the summer and fall to support our scholars during these challenging times.

As the founder of Academy of Media Arts (AMA), I understand some of the root causes that creates challenges for the scholars we serve within the Los Angeles Crenshaw/ Baldwin Hills community.

Scholars at AMA have the ability to have their social emotional needs met through AMA’s Health & Wellness Center. AMA’s Health & Wellness Center focuses on restorative justice practices that enables scholars to receive counseling services, meditation sessions, physical activity, and nutrition.

One of the root causes is scholars’ social emotional health. While the Academy of Media Arts academic model focuses on career technical education, we believe social emotional learning is critical to scholars’ academic achievement and career technical education. Your support will help AMA’s scholars continue to achieve in this difficult time.
