Create Now is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1996 that helps youth find their voices through arts mentoring and education. We serve vulnerable children ages 2-21 with our healing programs in writing, visual arts, music, performing arts, fashion and digital media. Kids who have been abused, neglected, homeless, on probation, incarcerated and dealing with other major challenges learn to communicate in a positive manner as they bond with adult role models who serve as mentors. Our workshops help them to find jobs and careers in the arts.
We also help prevent abuse, violence and homelessness by providing comprehensive programs to disadvantaged students in Title 1 schools who receive zero arts education.
Each year, we also bring thousands of these "forgotten children," those who have fallen through the cracks, to concerts, plays and other cultural events at premiere venues in the region. We have directly reached over 37,000 of the most troubled youth in Southern California during the last 20 years.
We need help to research funding and marketing opportunities, along with statistics about the challenges at-risk youth face, and how the arts can help them to heal. Ideally, you can also help our Marketing and Development Committees to develop useful lists with this information.
