Project: AMP (Art Mentorship Program)
Program: CO.STARTERS for Causes
Manny Strickland and Mario Brooks want to connect young adults with opportunities not only to express themselves through creative arts, but also to build sustainable creative careers. Through the CO.STARTERS for Causes class, they gained the tools necessary to start Amp, an arts mentoring program for underserved young adults, using techniques derived from African influences.
CO.STARTERS for Causes is a nine-week program that helps individuals put ideas into action, turning a passion for bettering the community into a sustainable and thriving endeavor.
