Spotlight on Nonprofits
In celebration of Savvy's 10-year anniversary we are putting the spotlight on some local superheroes who are doing good things for kids and families in Arkansas.
Who’s Leading? Founded in 2017 by musician and educator Correne Spero, Trust Tree is led by a group of female musicians, artists and arts educators with decades of experience.
What’s It All About? Trust Tree is a nonprofit focused on music and arts programming for girls. Its flagship program is a summer day camp located in the Arts and Humanities Building on the UA-Pulaski Tech campus in North Little Rock. Trust Tree offers girls a welcoming space to fine-tune their creative voices with the guidance of uniquely experienced female mentors, facilitators and guest artists. Over the course of the camp, girls learn to strengthen self-confidence and build new leadership through the creation of art and music.
When Can I Attend? Trust Tree will offer a free ukulele and string instrument workshop at the Hillary Rodham Clinton Children's Library March 30 from 10 a.m-1 p.m. You can register through the Children's Library. The 2019 summer camp offers two sessions: a one-week Songwriting workshop June 3-7, and a two-week Songwriting and Visual Art camp June 17-28. No prior musical experience is necessary.
How Can I Help? Trust Tree provides the opportunity for girls in need of financial assistance to attend camp on scholarships through the help of individual donors. If you’re interested in helping, you can donate to the 2019 camp at trusttree.org/howtohelp.
