Mara needs some help dealing with life right now. Her mom doesn’t seem to listen to her and her best friend Gia has slowly drifted away since the COVID-19 pandemic started. Mara feels overwhelmed by the mental health struggles she is facing and doesn’t know where to turn, she can’t seem to control the white noise that fills her mind when she feels anxious.

The CORE Org. is Creative Outreach Reinventing Expression, a source, and resource 501(c)3, providing arts enrichment and wellness. We are dedicated to providing professional after-school arts education and wellness in all arts formats throughout the east bay area. Classes are based in and open to all students in the Tiverton school district as well as our surrounding communities.  The CORE.org is a non-profit organization and is not funded by any school department. It receives its funding through grants, donations, and modest tuition for enrollment in our classes. We have the support of the Tiverton schools and teachers to offer after-school extended arts programming and we go through all the normal paperwork, each session, to do so, ensuring every child has the opportunity to experience the empowerment of expressive and creative arts. We are an all-inclusive organization unless a student is being disrespectful and/or harmful to themselves or others. CORE has never turned away a student for financial, religious or cultural beliefs, nor would it ever. The CORE.org board does not, nor has it ever, forced their opinions or beliefs on any student. However, while involved in the arts, many students find their own voice-and begin the process of discovering who they are along the way! This will always be encouraged. Parents and children are not forced but are welcomed to participate. We offer needs-based scholarships and attempt to make reasonable accommodations for students who require differentiated approaches to learning. Peer Productions is a collaborative effort between Newport County Prevention Coalition and The CORE Organization.
