City Hearts was founded in 1984 by Sherry and Bob Jason, who met as attorneys in the Public Defender’s Office representing youth charged with crimes. The husband and wife team believed then, as now, that the Arts are the powerful tools to communicate with and rehabilitate troubled youth at risk from gangs, drugs, school failure and crime. They created City Hearts, southern California’s preeminent Arts-based program of prevention,to transform and intervene in the lives of our communities’ most impoverished and at-greatest-risk children through performance and comprehensive Arts experiences. In 1993, City Hearts created the groundbreaking “Sentenced to the Stage” program for non-violent youthful offenders on probation, providing City Hearts as an alternative to traditional community service programs. Over 25 years, City Hearts has helped educate and inspire more than 27,000 children.
The event takes place at Saddlerock Ranch, Mulholland Highway, Malibu, on September 19.
