Mission: 

 

 

 

 

Founded in 1991, Artists For Humanity’s mission is to bridge economic, racial and social divisions by providing under-resourced youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in the arts.

At the heart of Artists for Humanity is the belief that skills equal power and opportunity. AFH has four goals, which provide urban teens with:

  • a safe meaningful place where they are respected for their contributions and develop mentoring relationships so important to teens;
  • an opportunity to have a voice through exhibitions, commercial services, and public presentations;
  • the respect and responsibility of paid employment that promotes self-esteem and financial accountability.  At AFH, young people learn entrepreneurship and get paid for their own creative production.
  • provide access to educational experiences and support that encourage academic achievement
