WHERE CREATIVITY BUILDS COURAGE | A fiscally sponsored project of Springboard for the Arts: http://bit.ly/donatetoSB.


The mission of courageous heARTS is to co-create experiences with young people by offering them a safe space, built with the intention to heal and empower- through expressive arts, community building and leadership development.


Youth will discover, heal, and strengthen their hearts so they can thrive as active, engaged, and courageous members of their community.

Our Principles of Process

Art is about a story, not a skill. Your story matters. Dig deep. Be courageous. Imagination leads to possibility. There are no mistakes, just opportunities. Feel from the heART and have fun!


After School: We offer a spectrum of expressive arts classes for 10-18 year olds. Our Free Fridays are a unique drop-in open studio model where youth can explore different mediums and go wherever their creative spirit leads.

Partnerships: courageous heARTS partners with various youth serving organizations to offer one-time or on-going arts activities.

Youth Leadership: Our Youth Advisory Board meets on a bi-weekly basis. This group of young people engage in program development, implementation and evaluation.
