ARTS reaches the goals of their core programs by offering the following services to our youth and community:
ARTS Center Campus
The ARTS Center is a “3rd Place” dedicated to multidisciplinary arts for students to engage in after school and on weekends. The students and staff have co-created the space, ensuring youth feel a sense of ownership and empowerment. It is bright, colorful, inspirational, positive, affirming, and welcoming to all who walk through the doors.
Creating Vibrant Neighborhoods Initiative
ARTS finds that a key strategy in empowering youth is engaging them in the transformation of their own communities through arts-based projects. Just as the arts provide a positive identity for youth, we believe the arts provide a positive identity for communities as well. This reinforces ARTS belief that creating safe, nurturing and inspiration spaces helps youth and communities thrive.
ARTS Enterprises are arts-based businesses employing student apprentices, teaching them real world job skills and providing quality products and services to the community. The revenue generated helps to support our program operations. These enterprises include our gallery, up-cycled furniture & decor, and public art.
