Art Transforms Lives 2022
"Making art is really, really, important to me and The Crucible has really fueled my passion. It’s something that’s become a big part of who I am. I feel like I look at life more positively through art.”
- Phoenix Baaqee, 13 years old
For so many youth and families, industrial arts classes provide innumerable benefits. Youth find social/emotional support, community-building, stress relief, and new ways of thinking.
Your meaningful gift will support scholarship access, free bike mechanic training, free youth workshops for OUSD students and their teachers, Fuego Youth Leadership stipends, and our new workforce development programs for youth pursuing careers as instructors, fabricators, and creative business owners in the industrial arts and trades.
Please help us raise $150,000 before the year ends so local youth can experience the ways in which art transforms lives.
