Thanks for stopping by. The Rosette Pierre’s Creative Classroom is a STEAM program and the proposed name for the museum/art center we'd love to operate in. The program is simply additional education support to the school's curriculum. We're aiming to produce future authors, filmmakers, artists, and art collectors/dealers, as well as entrepreneurs. The end result will be the reduction of students going into the school-to-prison pipeline and black youth suicide. We have plenty of paintings, statues, and books. Now we need a building. Not a tore up building but one that is presentable - a safe haven for our youth and staff.
The program is also an alternative to both school suspension and internal suspension during school hours. We decided to expand our current C2B Chess Club & Mentoring program to support more students in the Metro-Atlanta and Haiti in a creative way. We'll be implementing the CREATIVE ARTS, SCIENCE, BLACK HISTORY, AND MATH together. Our teaching strategy makes education more purposeful, relatable, and fun, which makes it easier to retain and apply the information. Children learn better when its fun.

Who: Courage To Believe International, Inc. has been working with at-risk youth since 2008. All children are welcomed ages 9 to 18 to join.
Why: Our goal is to continue reducing the suicide rate amongst black children under the age of 18 and circumventing the school-to-prison pipeline. We need your help in raising $1,000,000 to purchase a building (look below) and supplies for the art center.
We can't just talk about the problems and not offer any solutions, right?

Why are we having a $1,000,000 fundraiser, and why you should pitch in?
It's evident that after the murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Ahmaud Arbery - NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE UNLESS WE MAKE THE CHANGE. Our organization is seeking to open up a Creative Arts Center - Rosette Pierre’s Creative Classroom in Atlanta, Georgia first in 2021; we'll also start the campaigning for another one in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2021. Our youth needs a safe haven to study, learn, and grow - Courage To Believe Int'l is going to provide it.
We already know the building that we want to purchase for $820,000. It's the only building of its size for sale under $1 million in the Atlanta-Metro area. It's perfect for an art center/museum:
1. 3 Stories
2. 3,000 Sq. Ft.
3. Stand alone parking lot
4. Bus line (Marta Bus )
In time we'll partnership with other organizations in other states where the youth needs help the most. The Bottomline On Saturday, October 17, 2021, we will be hosting our 6th Annual Community Crime Solutions Panel. This year's theme is "Reparations and Justice!” The event will be virtual. We're also going to discuss a critical program for our youth.

More details about our program and fundraiser:
Rosette Pierre’s Creative Classroom (RPC) is a Cultural and Intellectual Enrichment 9 month program that was designed by Courage To Believe International, Inc. (C2B), and made possible with several community partnerships. RPC was designed to add to the students’ academic discipline in effort to foster future authors, filmmakers, artists and art collectors/dealers, as well as entrepreneurs. The ultimate goal of this program is to promote healthy lifestyles both mentally and physically, thus avoiding the school-to-prison pipeline and producing more productive tax paying citizens. Rosette Pierre’s Creative Classroom will serve as a vehicle to help cultivate the creative minds of our youth from the ages of 9 to 18 years, from all backgrounds to excel beyond perceived limitations - poverty, lack of parental guidance, peer pressure, violence, drugs, and generational curses- and be successful!
We created this program to assist with homework virtually or in person, as a positive alternative to internal suspension to keep the at-risk students engaged while school is in session instead of feeling alienated. Eventually we elevated the program to the next level out of concern of the increased televised police brutality towards the African-American community and the violence amongst the youth within the Atlanta urban community; these instances leave lasting determinantal images in the student's psyche, leading them towards the very thing that we are combating, the school-to-prison-pipeline. Our program is geared towards strengthening student learning in academic areas, communication arts, mathematics, and science, which has been proven according to Missouri Alliance for Arts Education research in 2019; art education supports student outcomes by providing quality fine arts instruction. The results are improvement in study discipline, attendance, and graduation rates.
