Teen Empowerment & Employment through the Arts

Artist for Humanity (AFH) is a unique and innovative arts organization that provides empowerment and employment for teens through the arts (painting, photography, sculpture, screen printing and digital media).  Located in Boston, MA since 1991, AFH’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.”

AFH partners professional artists/mentors with youth to design, produce and market art products from various media.  Growing up in Boston, I have always been a fan of AFH’s work and certainly hope to work with them one day.
