Creative Action is an arts-based youth development nonprofit. Our team of innovative and experienced Teaching Artists are skilled professionals trained to help youth develop their creativity, compassion, confidence, and critical thinking skills through high-quality, dynamic, culturally and socially relevant programs in schools and community settings. Through the transformative power of creative expression, social and emotional learning, and social justice education, we empower and educate youth so that they may develop personally and make positive contributions to their communities. We work with young people across socioeconomic settings to ignite social change. Through our school-based, after school and community programs that focus on whole child development, we teach young people to become successful adults who thrive in their careers and relationships while making positive contributions to their community. Rather than focus on developmental deficits, Creative Action uses a strength-based approach that reaches students of all backgrounds at a crucial time in their lives using curriculum that is socially and culturally relevant to them. That supportive, student-centered process develops what we call “4C” students: Creative Artists, Courageous Allies, Critical Thinkers, and Confident Leaders.
