Citywide Creative Arts

Amplifying youth voice

Our Citywide Creative Arts Program helps youth unleash their creativity, find their voice, and discover their power for change.

Through our connection to the vibrant San Francisco arts community, Club members have unique access to a number of creative arts opportunities. From recording their own music, to showcasing their artwork in a local gallery, to taking dance classes with the San Francisco Ballet, our Club members can learn a valuable new skill while enhancing their confidence, leadership, and professional network.
