Where arts, education, and community come together!
*The application for our fall session is now open. *
In Jóvenes en Acción, teens learn Afro-Latin arts (dance, music, or theatre) and participate in education and civic engagement workshops.
Jóvenes en Acción/Youth in Action (JEA) is our free, year-round program for youth in grades 8-12 that combines Afro-Latin arts, education and mentoring support, and civic engagement and youth organizing training. Participants also benefit from social-emotional support both 1:1 and in small groups. During the summer session, JEA turns into a paid opportunity.
