Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
For the past twenty years, Loco Bloco Drum and Dance Ensemble has served mostly low-income children and youth of color in and around San Francisco’s historic Mission District, through Afro-Latino music, dance, drumming, theater, and stilt-walking rooted in the Carnaval traditions of Brazil and the Caribbean. Loco Bloco’s programming fosters youths’ physical, mental, and spiritual evolution, developing the life skills necessary to make better choices in school and relationships, to think critically and creatively, problem-solve, adapt to diverse situations, collaborate with others, practice self-discipline, and set meaningful goals. Funding for this dynamic group would allow Loco Bloco to focus more intentionally on its youth/family curriculum, track the impacts of the program over time, create an alumni network, and strengthen its organizational capacities.
