Free Arts inspires hope in the lives of children who have experienced abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness through innovative creative arts programs and positive interactions with caring adult volunteers.
Free Arts volunteers are community members, students, professionals, retirees, artists, educators and activists from diverse backgrounds. Our volunteers help us reach over 27,000 underserved kids each year through four cornerstone programs: The Free Arts Mentoring Program, Free Arts for Families Program, Free Arts Days, and The Free Arts for Children's Court. Programs take place in group homes, residential care facilities, domestic violence shelters, low-income housing communities, and family resource centers throughout greater Los Angeles. We have a variety of ways for volunteers to get involved, from single day commitments to regular, weekly mentoring opportunities.
