MAPS: Media Arts in the Public Schools is now in five new Montana communities. The new programs need your support.

Our mission is to educate, train and create quality jobs for youth. FYI – our public school program is cash-flow positive and profitable and our ROI in human capital is proven. Our goal at all the clubs including Wolf Point is to create student owned profitable businesses by year three. Note: we have secured $21,000 of our $42,000 budget – a hometown helper grant would help immensely.
Paying for these programs is an ongoing effort and now you can help.

(and it will only take a minute of your time.)
