Mission Statement

Artists For Humanity (AFH) provides under-resourced teens the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design. AFH is built on the philosophy that engagement in the creative process is a powerful force for social change, and that creative entrepreneurship is a productive and life-changing opportunity for young people./p>
At Artists For Humanity (AFH), teen artists and designers collaborate on innovative projects commissioned by clients—like designing John Hancock’s signature 60’x60’ building wrap—for the Boston Marathon; or designing, fabricating and installing a 12' free-standing sculpture of the Olympic torch with integrated LED lighting for Liberty Mutual Insurance; or creating 45-second animated public service announcements to help a multi-lingual immigrant community understand their legal rights for Rosie’s Place; or designing and painting a 10’x45’ mural for a bike storage unit at the South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center for the Massachusetts Port Authority. AFH teens sit at the table with the CEOs of companies where their work is appreciated; their opinions are valued; they are treated as peers; and they are looked to as experts.
