We believe that ‘good’ means the same no matter where you go and universality connects us as human beings. Our mission is to embody that message in our work with students, artists and the greater community. With every interaction, we aim to empower a more connected, empathetic and resilient world by identifying, creating, sharing and celebrating “the simple good.”

TSG Youth Arts Program

Our innovative Arts Residency Program combines Social Emotional Learning, Mindfulness practices and Art expression to empower youth across Chicago and the world. Students go through a process of exploring ‘good’ within themselves, their communities and connect it to the world through art and discussion building resilience and helping them to spread positivity wherever they are to build a more connected future for us all.

Building Hope Project

The TSG Arts Program expanded, bringing our principles of positivity and meaningful connection through art to East Africa with our Building Hope Project. This initiative aims to plant seeds of hope to the children who will become our future by improving global educational environments and introducing the concept of healing through art.


This series of workshops and training programs help corporate partners create space for more empathetic and inclusive workplaces using our expertise in Social Emotional Learning and experience working in diverse communities. It is through these conversations that we empower those in positions of influence to recognize and address what is dividing them to uncover the commonalities that build bridges of community, hope and positive connection.


TSG aims to not only empower students in our backyard but around the WORLD. Our work has reached humans in Rwanda and Uganda in East Africa, London in the UK, Croatia and beyond. We plan to continue expanding globally as our organization grows. In an effort to best serve the needs of those near and far, we actively align with the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
