Phil,I thought I would pass along a big dream Art in Action holds to uplift the young people of Oakland. Galen, my amazing colleague has prepared a business plan/proposal for a creative, green youth training center in a neighborhood that we work in that urgently needs opportunities for youth. A lot of the Art in Action youth we work with are from this area, but there are so many more we could serve with our transformational model through this center. If you know some advocates in the funding world for youth, please feel free to share, or have them contact us.
