Art Studio Inc.'s mission is to provide a safe space for year-round youth empowerment programs in the impoverished 33150 area of Miami.
Since 2007, our Creative-Holistic Art Integration (CHAI) Life Arts programming has engaged students in innovative approaches to personal, academic, and career development. Because of the severe poverty, Art Studios presence has become about Human Rights advocacy, utilizing the arts as healing tools for empowerment and positive change. Art Studio seeks dedicated mentors with a passion for educating and empowering at-risk youth through summer arts programs.
Mentors are the backbone of our programs, providing individualized guidance and support to students. Our Teaching Artists prepare and lead each days curriculum, and volunteer mentors like you give students additional one-on-one support throughout the day. As a mentor, you are a role model to our youth. We encourage you to engage students in conversation as the activities allow and talk about your experience in your particular academic and career path. Art experience not required, just a passion for empowering young minds towards successful futures! Responsibilities include: Assisting and guiding youth in program activities, and maintaining discipline using ASM approved methods, assisting with set up Other volunteer opportunities include organizing supply drives, fundraising, and special events.
