Arts Aspire Programs

Open Enrolllment

This college and career readiness program promotes strong leadership and job skills for youth and young adults ages 14-25. Arts Aspire activities provide opportunities that enable participants to use what they know, expand their knowledge, and benefit from invaluable on-the-job leadership experiences. Students will learn directly from working professionals from a variety of industries with opportunities to pursue internships or to receive mentoring. Community service hours and stipends are available.

Arts Aspire is a three-tier pyramid of experiences designed to allow youth to graduate from one tier to the next beginning in high school and continuing beyond graduation into college or another path. The three levels are tailored to the experience, interest and ability of participants as follows:

Teen Arts Ambassadors for ages 14-18
Arts Associates for ages 17-18
Arts Apprentice for ages 18-25

Each tier of the pyramid builds essential 21st century workplace skills through hands-on experiences in a fast-paced environment with kids, families and arts-minded people. Through Arts Aspire participants apply what they learn, expand their knowledge of working in the arts, and benefit from invaluable on-the-job experiences that develop their leadership skills. They also have fun along the way!
