Recently, I've been wanting to get more involved with non profit organizations because I feel that they are society's safety net when more and more government establishments cut back on educational resources. Art Share's mission to cultivate artistic talent within at-risk youth is a testament to a greater good, which is the development of creative, well-rounded people. Everyone is an artist and Art Share is the mirror that reflects that back at whoever is involved with the organization. Each time I go to Art Share, I feel compelled to help spread their vision and achievement to as many people as possible so I volunteered to help with their social network on the Internet. The staff at Art Share is some of most passionate and charismatic people I've ever met and make every volunteer feel like family. It feels wonderful to be a part of a true sanctuary for art in Los Angeles and hear about stories of the students' adversity and triumph. With more resources, I am certain that Art Share's future will be brighter, that they will reach more people, and build more character and innovation within the city's youth.
