“The arts, it has been said, cannot change the world, but they may change human beings, who might change the world.”
ARTS helps youth realize their full potential
through the arts and creative expression.
Our goal is to ensure that young people have the skills needed to navigate life’s challenges, are prepared to thrive in the modern workforce, and are primed to lead positive change in their communities.
We do this through:
- free arts education classes in Visual, Performing, Media Arts, and Maker
- paid creative internships with professional mentors
- youth-led community revitalization efforts
- an on-site network of professional support that includes mental health and wellness counseling, college and career advising, and leadership coaching
