Local neighborhoods, big impact
Over 500 homeless and low-income youth involved in our Studio and Community Art program. Over 400 program graduates went on to complete high school/GEDs, enter college, begin alternate vocational training, or work for YSA.
Who We Help
We work with Bay Area youth (aged 16-25) who are low-income, unemployed, and untrained. They often come from situations of poverty, homelessness, or foster care.
