The Eight, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of all people. We believe that everyone has something to offer, and we are dedicated to helping people reach their full potential.
We offer a variety of programs and services, including:
INOV8 is a career track for youth and adults that provides innovative vocational and educational training.
INOV8 offers creative entrepreneurship training designed to enrich the lives of local community members.
INOV8 helps to build self-esteem and uncap the hidden talents of the organic learner.
By utilizing these talents, we help individuals change hobbies into lucrative careers to become self-sufficient.
INOV8 also offers arts and culture programs that help people and communities understand, express, and communicate their ideas, emotions, needs, hopes, and concerns. These programs use creativity to improve mental health and well-being.
We believe that creativity is a powerful tool for healing and well-being. Our programs help people express themselves through art, music, and writing, which can lead to a greater sense of self-awareness and empowerment.
Here are some additional details about the benefits of creativity for mental health:
Reduces stress and anxiety. When we are creative, we are able to focus on something other than our problems. This can help us to relax and de-stress.
Improves mood. When we create something, we feel a sense of accomplishment. This can boost our mood and make us feel more positive.
Improves self-esteem. When we express ourselves creatively, we are able to connect with our inner selves. This can help us to feel more confident and secure.
Improves relationships. When we share our creativity with others, we build bridges and create connections. This can help us to feel more connected to others and to our community.
We hope that you will consider joining us in our mission to make a positive impact on the lives of all people.
