Arts for Change and Transformation (ACT) Institute: Youth Community Leadership Cohort is a two week institute followed by 6 months of engagement connecting you to community and social justice themes while offering support to your efforts both creatively and financially. Participants will engage in workshops and art creations (such as but not limited to, open mics and audio composition/recordings, visual arts etc) which embody social justice, individual/collective healing of trauma, and social-emotional learning. We are going to practice being the change we wish to see in the world and connecting to amazing spaces doing the work.
May – October 2022 participants will continue to connect and collaborate each week through a series of opportunities with the CSC Team and some extraordinary community partners, including Urban Sanctuary. In addition to monthly group meetings, Cohort participants will have monthly coaching with a CSC facilitator to support their racial equity and mental health journey through accountability, mentorship, coaching, empathy, and other needs that may arise in the process. Participants will have access to ongoing CSC programs including monthly Alumni gatherings after the completion of the cohort.
ACT Institute participants must receive resource kits and attend virtual workshops.
If accepted into the CLC cohort, participants will commit to;
-Three coaching sessions to be scheduled with facilitators between April-Sept.
-Three Community Pathway events (Yoga or Farming)
-Three Creative Pathway events (Audio Production or Creative Movement)
-Youth Community Leadership Monthly Gathering
