Art Studio Inc
January 31, 2011

I came to Art Studio as a volunteer mentor early in the summer of 2009 and immediately felt as if I'd found home. The Art Studio team of artists and volunteers are so passionate about the work they do to inspire, encourage, and empower the youth of Little Haiti through the integration of creative-holistic arts, and the core team is equally dedicated to providing a supportive and welcoming environment for all volunteers and contributors.

The Great!

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

bringing light to the youth of Little Haiti. You can see the change in each student's confidence, self-esteem, and skills by the end of each program. Also in educating others about the plight of youth living in poverty and the Cradle to Prison Pipeline.

Ways to make it better...

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

increase capacity by increasing funding. Art Studio is able to do a LOT with the limited resources it currently has (over 700 youth served already!), but would be able to have a much greater impact with consistent, sustainable funding staff and resources/volunteers.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Mentored youth, helped host youth art activity days, and helped with admin/fundraising.
