Self Help Graphics and Art is forming a Youth Committee!

If you are between the ages of 15 to 24 and are interested in the arts and community, learn to develop and lead civically engaging art programs and projects with other youth leaders through our Youth Committee!

The Youth Committee will gain experience in civic engagement, receive training to create and lead programming for other youth to increase the awareness of community health issues, youth incarceration, and restorative justice in education.

Members will be monetarily compensated, will meet twice a month, and must attend the required dates of the Summer Retreat July 23rd - August 2nd from 10AM - 3PM. The retreat will be filled with meeting artists, civic leaders, and social service groups, and to begin planning the year ahead.


The deadline has passed.

The Goal

The goal of the Youth Committee is to become ambassadors of Self Help Graphics & Art and recruit more youth to be involved in our space. Their participation involves working with our Director of Artistic Programs and Education in identifying, developing, and implementing curriculum that they would like to see represented in our space for youth.
