We are proud to be on the Junior Board of Free Arts NYC, a non-profit organization that empowers underserved youth through art and mentoring programs to develop their creativity, confidence and skills to succeed.
Collectively, we are raising money to sponsor a Free Arts Day (FAD) in which elementary-aged kids are paired 1-on-1 with volunteers for an afternoon of "mini-mentoring" and art making. Many of our kids come from shelters and go to schools that lack art rooms and teachers. In a time when housing inequality is rising while funding to arts is under threat, it is even more crucial to provide our youth with opportunities for creative expression, and to make them feel special and proud of their work.
We hope you are inspired to contribute to our FAD - together, we can sponsor a day that will truly make a difference!
