The mission of Dorill Initiative is to focus on multi-ethnic pre-teens and young adults living in underserved communities by training the next generation of ethical and entrepreneurial leaders through the performing arts. Through educational and mentorship programs, we are committed to bringing awareness to social issues and its effects on our world today. We will educate, motivate, and empower our youth to set higher standards for themselves and stay focused on pursuing their dreams. Dorill members perceive opportunity, foster the development of self-confidence, make smart relationship choices, grow academically, value health and wellness, and have the ability to attend college or enter the workforce fully prepared.

The Dorill Initiative was launched in the summer of 2014. The organization was created out of Tareake's passion for art; inspiring and helping others get through hard times. He wanted to develop an organization that would bring both of his passions together and help make a difference in the world.

The Dorill Initiative is now a fully staffed team of young artists and supporters of the arts committed to making a difference. To meet some of the members of our family, click here.
