Youth Initiative Program
The Youth Initiative Program is a series of artist-led workshops which uphold the mutual values of the Labor and Civil Rights movements by helping young people develop their abilities to be active, responsible, and justice-oriented citizens in their homes, neighborhoods, and future workplaces. We have served hundreds of Youth in St.Louis since 2010. The Youth Initiative Program aims to:

  • Provide underserved youth, minorities, immigrants and refugees, access to an arts education
  • Explore individual and community health issues with youth
  • Improve participants’ confidence in making healthy choices
  • Encourage youth to embrace their role as community activists
  • Increase in participants’ arts and humanities skills and knowledge
  • Grow participants’ understanding of the intersections between the arts, humanities, and social change
  • Foster the desire to address problems in the communities participants belong to
