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.

–Enrolled in 8th grade or high school

–Ages 13-19 (*Youth cannot turn 20 or older before June of the 2021-2022 school year.)

If you are curious about the JEA program we will be having a virtual information session on Dec. 14th, 2021 at 6:00 pm. Here is the Eventbrite link to register for the virtual information session.
