After fully developing their skills along one (or more) of the five tracks, Jr. Artists exercise leadership and greater responsibility within YSA. They are able to take on a variety of tasks, and are job ready.
- In example, a Jr. Artist trained in Non-Profit Social Work has the duty of meeting with new youth to learn their strengths, skills, and interests. The leader helps the youth set specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely goals, and supports their progress reaching these goals. The Jr. Artist is also trained to document this work.
“To embody the mission statement of the organization by placing a positive example for the youth. To support all others and fulfill tasks willingly.” Jada Carter, YSA 2014 Fall Jr. Artist
