Unlocking the creative power of youth takes a dynamic collaboration between arts educators, the community and youth themselves. Together, we can help all young people have the courage to imagine and freedom to create a just and vibrant future.
Rooted in our belief that all young people deserve equitable arts learning opportunities, access to our programs is priority. All of our classes are free to teens and we provide beginning to advanced level arts classes in places where youth are already present such as, schools and community centers. Arts Corps is also working toward honoring and building youth leadership within the organization.
Courses include music, dance, poetry, performance, and media taught by professional teaching artists and mentors.
Teen programs open to any interested youth (13 to 19) include:
- Advanced Teen Artist – All Access at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
- Youth Speaks
- Teen classes at after-school sites and community centers - view open classes here
A complete online list of classes for teens is coming soon!
