Description

Youth Art Exchange is a youth arts education organization with a citywide reach. We invest in multidisciplinary arts education and leadership development programs for under-served youth, in creating spaces that build a youth-driven community across race, socio-economic status, and sexual orientation, and in building organizational collaborations that strengthen the role of youth and the arts in San Francisco. In a year at Youth Art Exchange, we work with 300 public high school students for regular, sustained service. Through our youth-driven public events, we reach approximately 2,000 audience members a year. In numbers, our youth are incredibly diverse, representing 6 different first languages, and multiple ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
