Our Programs

What differentiates MENTOR ARTISTS- MAPP from many other programs is our broader focus on community support. By placing a greater awareness on the reciprocal relationship the community must play in a young person’s education, we engage peers, parents, educators, and elders in a dialogue. This aspect of “listening” at the program development stage and later through audience participation at the youth centered events, ensures that the young person’s voice is central. We also focus on rural areas and urban populations with limited access to creative resources and funding. MAPP’s goal is to reach more organizations who will have access to this youth empowered approach.

Want to start something creative in your school, neighborhood, or village? We offer specialized arts- based training programs according to your community’s interests and needs. Here are some examples:
