Leon Kendrick Youth Voices United (LKYVU) provides East Chicago youth with quality, affordable art and music programs. The organization gives children a safe place to be after school and a creative outlet that helps to build their self-confidence. Not only do LKYVU participants have a variety of programs to choose from, they all get to showcase their work to friends, family and community members on a regular basis, which helps to promote togetherness within the city.
