"Thank you for creating touchstones for young people to discover more about themselves."
The Teen Arts Mentorship Program gave me the confidence, skills, knowledge, and connections to pursue a career in the arts. It prepared me for my future, that I now see as exciting and promising instead of something scary and unknown.
I am now pursuing a degree in Nursing and Graphic Design from Allan Hancock College. Thank you Arts Fund!
