Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We at Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum (Also known as SOJO) believe that art, in its uncompromising form, has the ability to produce an environment that fosteres a productive exchange of cultural ideas. Our aim is to expose the local community to global art. We realize that Sacramento population is a representation of the world globally and we desire to build networks and strengthen community through cultural exchanges.
The Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum is dedicated to presenting Asian, African, Hispanic and Native American art to the general public. Presently, our museum has displays from every corner of our globe, represeting the multicultural and multiethnic population in our community. We also host outreach programs to bring to Sacramento artists from various parts of the United States and the world. Our goal is to showcase art from the eyes of the artists themselves.
Our Art Development Center creates a structured learning environment for children and youth that are at-risk, by using art education as a medium to teach fundamental life skills and social values. Through the creative arts, our vision is to work towards a healthy learning environment where hard to serve youth, from diverse backgrounds, can learn and grow harmoniously.
The art center has over a decade of service in the sacramento community. Our current projects include the 2010 SOJO Summer Camp and the Hip-Hop to Wellness Family Health Program. The summer camp is offered to youth ages 8 to 14. It operates Monday through Friday from 10:00 to 3:00pm . The Hip Hop to Wellness Program, sponsored by Kaiser, utilizes the art of dance to tackle the issue of childhood obesity. The program reaches out to both child and family and features required workshops in nutrition, mental wellness and more. As well as the 1st Annual Banana Festival, located at Consumnes River College in Sacramento August 13th, 14th and 15th 2010.
