This session features the voices of three programs doing innovative work with Creative Youth Development: Art As Mentorship, Re:Frame Youth Arts Center, and David’s Harp Foundation. We discussed how these programs have forged new paths to engage youth, elevate youth voice, and develop community through music. The session is an opportunity for attendees to think about new ways to approach equity and community through music.

Re:Frame Youth Arts Center is a space with open community center vibes for young folxs to artistically resist the decentering of their power, rights, and identities. Co-led by young artists and a few of their adult allies, we work towards ending adultism, the systematic mistreatment of young people.

Art As Mentorship is a nonprofit based in Kansas City that empowers young people, through music, to write their own success stories. Our programs teach students valuable life skills including self-confidence, emotional intelligence, discipline and entrepreneurial skills.
