About

Art from Ashes (AfA) is seeking a volunteer with solid editing skills for up to 4 hours per week of on-site or remote editing for grant applications; primarily for General Operating Expense grants from private foundations. Volunteer will be required to participate in the AfA volunteer orientation program, 'ArtCurious Tour,’ to get the best sense of the organization as whole prior to joining the grant team.

Art from Ashes is an award winning 501(c)3 nonprofit that has operated in the Denver Metropolitan area and surrounding counties since 2003. AfA collaborates with local institutions that serve high-risk youth to provide interactive creative workshops that empower youth to create positive change in their own lives.

The youth AfA serves are at or below poverty level and typically victims of abuse. AfA believes that these most neglected and vulnerable members of our communities build identities as they develop that are based on negative experiences and circumstances, and that negative identities are a root cause of violent and other anti-social behavior. We offer an opportunity for struggling youth to recognize an identity that is not based on negative circumstance, but rather innate creativity, which empowers youth to take control of their own minds, choose positive behaviors, and generate progressive change in their own communities.
