Our Mission.

Port City Studios (PCS) will be a place dedicated to providing local teens with a creative outlet for musical expression. Working under the umbrella of DREAMS, the mission of this studio is to attract at-risk teens, though it will be open to the public. The studio aims to serve as a positive, creative, and productive outlet for self-expression. Ideally, PCS will be seen as somewhat separate from DREAMS. This will attract teens who see DREAMS stigmatized as an arts program for little boys and girls. By giving these teens a positive, exciting place to hang-out, create music, and write thoughtful lyrics, we are molding these young individuals into better people, and people who are better able to be a force for good in communities struggling with poverty, abuse, and crime.
