JOIN JÓVENES EN ACCIÓN

Where arts, education, and community come together!

Want to explore acting, learn dance, or play music? In Jóvenes en Acción, teens learn Afro-Latin arts, participate in mentoring, and get involved in their community.

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 creative opportunity.
