The Northeast Performing Arts Group (NEPAG) is an award-winning, culturally-based arts and education program whose mission is to develop and foster the creative talents of youth in the Northeast/Southeast corridors of Washington, D.C. through performing and visual arts.
As an alternative to street life and to teach the invaluable lessons of discipline, commitment and team motivation, NEPAG has trained over 7,000 youth and helped more than 400 enroll in college.
Targeting Ward 7 youth living in River Terrace, Kenilworth, Marshall Heights, Benning Terrace and Lincoln Heights/Richardson Dwellings communities, the studio offers dance, drama and vocal classes as well as academic support services and life skills training and planning.
The N.E. Outreach Youth Center and arts studio has evolved into a safe haven where young people ages 3 - 18 can prepare for life while exploring the arts after school, weekends and during the 9-week Summer Performing Arts Camp.
