The Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network is an interdisciplinary cooperative that provides arts instruction to build resiliency and wellness, eliminate recidivism and transform the juvenile justice system. The resulting programs are providing services to youth incarcerated in the County’s 17 juvenile detention facilities. This collaboration aims to connect in-school academic learning with out-of-school experiences that allow young people to gain insights and skills in the arts, discover avenues for self-expression, build self-sufficiency and collaboration skills, and recognize pathways to viable careers in the arts.
