Visual Arts: BUILD Arts Academy

The BUILD Arts Academy uses the arts as a vehicle to help at-risk young people address social-emotional issues such as trauma, build skills, and connect with opportunities for college and career preparation, leadership development, and community engagement. The Arts Academy also works to positively impact our communities through beautification of public spaces, a free community art show, increased collaboration among community organizations, and a reduction in youth crime.

BUILD is asking for your support to help 60 youth participate in our BLOCK 51 summer arts program!
