I have gone with groups of at-risk youth (from shelters and group homes) to see plays at the Geffen Playhouse and Cirque du Soliel. The kids have generally never been exposed to theater, and their eyes really light up when they have the chance to participate. Exposing them to the arts gives them a new outlet for their feelings and frustrations, and it's great to be a part of it.

I'm a new volunteer in the art department and recently helped out at a family housing shelter.
I worked with the kids to create a banner for their upcoming talent show
and it really turned out well. It was a very rewarding experience and I'm so proud to have been a part of the
show.
Look forward to helping out more in the future!

Create Now provides programs for at-risk kids and teenagers. The courses provide both education and inspiration, offering the attendees not only an outlet for their creativity, but also skills in specific areas of the arts. I've had a wonderful experience working with this program as a volunteer. Create Now's support does not stop when a session ends. Attendees are encouraged to stay in touch with the organization and take advantage of additional resources and support as they move forward.

Feedback from the students. I have had previous attendees come back to take future courses with me because they enjoyed the subject matter and appreciated the opportunity to express themselves.

Possibly provide more training and feedback, but overall my experience has been very positive.

I worked with Create Now doing an arts & crafts workshop for at risk youth. The kids absolutely loved the class and I was able to see how doing creative projects gave them confidence and self-esteem as well as a great deal of enjoyment. Create Now helps these kids channel their energy in a very positive way, doing a wide array of creative individual and group projects. It opens up all kinds of possibilities for these kids that they may not have ever thought would be available to them. I've seen first hand how beneficial these opportunities are for these great kids.

I have taught one standup comedy class for Create Now and it was a wonderful experience. Create Now gives at-risk youth the chance to reach artistic potential that they did not know they had. The organization provides youth the opportunity to access skills and creative talents that can increase their resiliency and change their life course.

Create Now's organization is beyond hands on and inspiring! They make sure that everything and anything that can be done for these kids are done with flying colors! The love and passion is evident! I have volunteered in one of The Transitional Living Homes and they provided such support :) The kids were thrilled and were so empowered! A beautiful thing and a beautiful Non-Profit!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

When I saw the proud faces of 19 homeless kids and their families before, during, and after their Transformers Talent Show in North Hollywood. Truly amazing to see these kids show off their talents and all their hard work!

Create Now is such an amazing organization that is changing the lives of so many people. I have been working on their database for several months now, so I am not in direct contact with the kids, but it's not hard for me to see that Jill and the mentors are very dedicated in helping the kids that are going through hard times. I'm sure that they will all remember the wonderful experiences that they have had with Create Now. It is truly an honor to be able to work with this organization.

I've been maintaining Create Now's web site since 2006. As a graphic designer and a singer, I know how arts can inspire and bring out the best in everyone, old or young. I've seen it change lives in both small and large ways, and nobody facilitates this better in the lives of at-risk young people than Create Now. It's a privilege to be part of this dynamic, life-affirming group of people.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the knowledge that the work I do gets the word out, bringing in the support needed for staff, volunteers, mentors, and kids to get the most out of their experiences. I see this every time I attend an event or hear about the latest workshop or outing.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

...want to see a more effective marketing program established to raise public awareness of the existence of Create Now in order to bring in ongoing funding to increase and maintain the myriad workshops, outings, and one-on-one mentoring opportunities provided to at-risk kids.

Working with at-risk or high-risk youths and sharing creative time with them. I am honored that these kids allow me to share this fragile time of their lives with them. I have so many good memories about being creative and if what we are creating with these kids can be positive memories for them, I would happy to have been a part of that experience. The kids deserve this and so much more. The energy, creativity and curiosity they bring each week and is amazing!
