ArtVan is a mobile arts therapy organization whose mission is to provide a creative and collaborative environment to encourage youth who have little or no arts access to fully express their imaginations, relationships and experiences within themselves, among their peers and across our communities. They bring arts to the people in their colorful painted van to those who have the least amount of social services, after school and summer activities available to them. The fellow will participate in all summer neighborhood programming design, implementation, and material organizing. Woven into the fellow’s work will be the opportunity to work with the Director of Development on operational aspects of ArtVan.
Fellows projects may include:
- Design and implement a direct service project to one or more neighborhoods. This project can reflect the Fellow's interest areas as well as meet ArtVan's goal to create a safe, collaborative, and creative setting for Youth to express themselves, make change, and feel empowered.
- Support a nonprofit interest area of academic and personal development while promote ArtVan mission.
