Tampa I Prodigy is an early prevention youth program designed to improve the life chances of children ages 7-17 by providing a safe arena where they learn communication, problem-solving and conflict resolution skills through visual and performing arts. The program is a collaboration between the University Area Community Development Corporation (UACDC) and the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice. Offered in seven counties, Prodigy has one of the highest success rates at one of the lowest costs of any program in the state of Florida.
The main offices for Tampa I Prodigy are located at the University Area Community Center Complex in room 106 and 129. However, we have various programming locations where our after-school and summer classes are held.
