About our Les ailes du desir Foundation and social inclusion programs.

Our LADD foundation specifically focuses on embracing our local community unique diversity of culture along with their potential unexplored creativity. The main goal of this foundation is to articulate a structured and progressive training for under 18 years old that meets specific hardship criteria such as emotional and/or financial distress. As such, we would look to develop collaborative programs with schools, elder care, homeless women and youth groups to increase participation among the community by:

 

  • Providing opportunities to introduce and inspire youth by using circus activities
  • Providing youth with alternative forms of positively releasing energy
  • Encourage and allow positive self-expression through the exploration of movement and different circus disciplines
  • Leveraging the unique experience of professional performers and inspire up and coming talent

Keeping youth and teen at risk out of trouble by addressing sensitive subjects and share their insights as a focus group on topics such as gun violence, drugs, and youth exposed to domestic violence and family dynamics destroyed due to drug addiction.
