In 2002 the World Trust Foundation partnered with, "Return to Freedom" where we took a cross-cultural youth group to the Wild Horse Sanctuary for a day long retreat.
Through the day, the youth were taught leadership skills, while using art and music to empower their experience.
Return to Freedom is dedicated to saving The American Wild Horse, ensuring its freedom and diversity for generations to come. As a solution-based organization, they are committed to the protection of horses who need us now while we continue to present solutions for the future.

The World Trust Foundation was invited to have several Youth Ambassadors attend a special weekend at Return To Freedom. A TV crew was on hand to film the day and our youth were premiered on an Animal Planet special to promote the release of "Spirit- Stallion of the Cimerron" produced by DreamWorks.
What is a Creativity Camp?
The camps provide a place for students to connect with others in the Los Angeles area, while creating projects that will be displayed on the web site and made into interactive educational programming elements for our Youth Ambassador Program. This enables youth from around the world to attend the camps virtually, as well as attend in person one day in the future.
The Creativity Camps showcase environmental solutions and teach the youth about how they can help with regard to the environment, as well as become Youth Ambassadors for the World Trust Foundation. The Arts-In-Action program also connects youth on-line for collaborative and creative projects.
If you are a school or youth and want to participate in our creativity camps, please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Arts in Action Highlight
Sheenway Cultural Art Center is an educational program for children in the Los Angeles community of Watts and South Central Los Angeles, where children are threatened by the violence that grows out of economic desperation and racism. Dolores Sheen, cofounder of the school, teaches critical skills to expand children's life options. "Aunt Dolores", as the students call her, believes that education should encourage a child to develop totally; she supplements academic work with creative, experiential lessons in social survival skills and personal responsibility.(www.sheenway.org)
