Donate to MADLab

You can empower youth to gain new skills and improve their community through art. MADLab youth will create public art and develop clean green spaces along the Fall Kill Creek, an overlooked waterway in downtown Poughkeepsie. Donate to The Art Effect’s 2019 MADLab program today!


The MADLab (Media/Art/Design Lab) – formerly Habilidad, Media Magic and Project Able, is an “earn while you learn” arts career exploration and job skills training program that addresses the needs of youth facing multiple barriers to employment in year-round after-school programs and an intensive 8-week summer session.
