Art Transforms Lives






"Being able to make things by yourself as a young person is a monumentally important thing to do.  It's life-changing to be able to do that."  - 18 year-old Simha Furaha

Your gift today supports Bay Area youth with the space to learn and innovate when faced with challenges.  Because of donors like you, in 2021, we will:

  • Commit to equitable arts access and provide 65% of youth programs for no cost 
  • Provide safe, socially-distanced, in-person industrial arts experiences for over 1,000 Bay Area youth

  • Expand Bike Shop to fix 300 bikes for our neighbors and teach 100 local youth fabrication and repair skills
  • Bring Field Trips online, providing a free remote learning experience for 1,200 Title I & OUSD students
