Youth Spirit Artworks is an innovative, youth led, Berkeley-based jobs
training program aimed toward empowering and transforming lives through
creating art in a safe, supportive community and getting paid. YSA is
currently accepting participants for our Spring and Summer 2014 programs
which run from now until June 13th and June 16th until August.
YSA is open M-F 330 to 630pm and Sat. Noon to 3pm. Youth come after
school and choose 3 days each week to participate for a total of 10
hours a week. They can choose from either MWF 330pm to 630pm or TTHF
330pm to 630pm. All participants receive 50 percent of the proceeds of
everything they make and sell as part of YSA. Beginners get paid a $75
stipend per month for participating. YSA is a peer-led organization,
youth are allowed and encouraged to participate fully in all decisions
of the YSA community. Youth are able and encouraged to gain increasing
amounts of leadership and responsibility within YSA.
To qualify for YSA's stipend 10 hr per week program, participants need
to be living at or below poverty level.
