Strong City/Baltimore Youth Arts Internship Development
This position is sponsored by Strong City Baltimore in Baltimore, MD; and the VISTA member will serve with Baltimore Youth Arts in Baltimore, MD. BYA’s programs consist of 1.) a year-long program that provides weekly arts classes in two juvenile detention centers; and 2.) the BYA Studio Apprentice Program, a creative entrepreneurship and job readiness program that operates in four sessions a year. The main goal of the enrichment program is to develop relationships with youth in detention and sustain them, through their participation in the Apprentice Program, as they transition from juvenile facilities to the community. Apprentices receive in-depth arts education and gain soft skills, such as critical thinking, leadership, and teamwork. Through our job readiness program, youth learn how to write resumes, apply to jobs, receive financial literacy training, and practice interview skills. In 2018-19 the VISTA volunteer will help lay the groundwork for an internship program, geared towards Alumni of the Studio Apprentice Program. Strong City sponsors 20 VISTA projects at nonprofit, government, and community organizations throughout Baltimore City and Maryland. Established in 1969 to help neighborhoods become safer, better places to live, Strong City's mission is to build and strengthen neighborhoods and people. Strong City will provide support to Baltimore Teacher Supply Swap and the VISTA member throughout the year, including recruitment, training, resources, and professional development opportunities, and meetings.
