According to Merriam-Webster.com, the definition of a “lost art” is as follows: something usually requiring some skill that not many people do anymore. It is often said that the practice of hand-writing letters has become a lost art with the advent of email and other technological advances. As with letter writing, there are many other practices that we call “life skills” that also have become lost arts because they are no longer being taught in schools or in the home, if anywhere at all. That is the need that Lost Arts Academy wants to fill.

Lost Arts Academy was formed on April 26, 2022, with the foundational mission to improve the future of disadvantaged and/or underserved youth and adults by providing life skills training, financial education, and personal/professional development resources at no cost. This mission will be accomplished by delivering programs and resources that will provide exposure to and opportunities for learning and practicing a myriad of “lost arts” focused on personal and financial wellness, holistic education, and community involvement. The ultimate goal is that these lost arts become common knowledge that is taught from generation to generation and are no longer considered lost.


The main objectives of the Lost Arts Academy include, but are not limited to:

Promote life-skills programming and activities to educate the target demographic on personal health, wellness, and self-development


Promote mental health awareness

Provide financial wellness resources Provide opportunities for exposure to resources and events that can lead to employment and provide career development resources Train and encourage participation in community development and advocacy Act as a conduit for the dissemination of assistance and resources to the community at large Host events and activities to build community and provide education, resources, and exposure

 

Lost Arts Academy will focus its efforts in low-income, underserved, and disadvantaged neighborhoods in the Greater Houston Metro Area where there is an abundance of opportunity to provide life changing services such as life skills training, financial education, community involvement and more. The plan to secure a permanent location that will serve as a base of operations will be executed in the areas that we serve. We are committed to being located directly in the areas that need us most and easily accessible to our primary customers.

 Please consider donating today to bring these needed services to the communities of the Greater Houston Metro area. Your donation will support the development and execution of the programs of Lost Arts Academy and assist with getting the organization off to a strong, sustainable start. Your donation is tax deductible and GREATLY APPRECIATED!
