Once juveniles are convicted of a crime, the opportunity gap widens exponentially, making it even more difficult for youth to chart their own path.
Creative Solutions is an arts-as-workforce intervention program for adjudicated and marginalized youth. We use visual, performing and digital arts to help young people tap into their inherent greatness by improving job skills, promoting a positive self-image and increasing social and emotional development. Creative Solutions uses a trauma-informed, results-driven model to promote lasting positive change in the youth served.
