Create Now’s mission is to empower at-risk and high-risk youth and young adults from ages 3 to 24 through a variety of arts programs in multi-disciplines that help them to heal and thrive. Our goal is to assist them to get out of poverty and learn skills that can lead to jobs and careers.

We focus on the most vulnerable kids who are abused, neglected, orphaned, homeless, victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking, on probation, incarcerated or experiencing other severe challenges. Although small in size, our staff taps into many resources in the community to provide quality arts programs and services. Create Now has reached more than 49,000 youth in 24 years!

We are seeking a Social Media volunteer to help our Marketing Team with writing, copy-writing, editing, caption writing, blogs and newsletters.

Feel free to Email our Volunteer Coordinator Lola Kate here: lola@createnow.org

Mission Statement

Create Now is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1996 that transforms the lives of youth in need through arts mentoring and experiences. We serve vulnerable children from birth to age 24 with our therapeutic programs in music, writing, visual arts, fashion, digital media and the performing arts. Kids learn to express themselves in a positive manner versus the destructive ways that they have in the past. Each year, we also bring thousands of these youngsters to concerts, plays and other cultural events. We have reached over 44,000 of the most troubled youth in Southern California during the last 22 years.
