Render Creative Inc. (Main IDEA)
Render Creative Inc. is a non-profit organization focused on empowering youth by encouraging self-expression through quality accessible arts programs. Each year we run a summer program called “Main IDEA,” working with multi-ethnic youth ages 8–12 in the Main South neighborhood of Worcester, MA, offering exposure to the arts at no cost to their families on campus at Clark University. We partner with local artists, businesses and organizations to offer a variety of art disciplines: Music, Creative Drama, Creative Writing, Dance, and Visual Art.
We are proud to call Main South, Worcester our home. Among the families we serve here the majority come from low-income households and are English language learners. Additionally, Main South poses further challenges to the success of its children with the coupling of a high crime rate and a relative lack of accessible programs in which children can participate. Although they face steep challenges we know that our kids are capable of great success.
