Artists For Humanity (AFH) provides teens the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design.
AFH is built on the philosophy that engagement in the creative process is a powerful force for social change, and that creative entrepreneurship is a productive and life-changing opportunity for young people.
Bridging economic, racial and social divisions, AFH enriches urban communities by introducing young people's creativity to the business community.
At Artists For Humanity, teen artists and designers collaborate on innovative projects commissioned by clients. AFH teens sit at the table with industry professionals from Boston’s business community. Their opinions are valued, they are treated as colleagues, and looked to as experts.
Artistic experience not required, but a passion for learning is!
We work with creative and imaginative young people to provide art and design services for businesses and the community. With multi-media capacity offered via six creative studios and pioneering social impact driven by our mission, we offer real opportunities for partnership.
As in any creative studio, AFH engages the design process. What’s different? The fresh, boundless thinking and the new vision of young people from Boston! We leverage this amazing and renewable asset, the mixed-media skill set of our professional team of mentors, and our pioneering social impact model to offer you a potent blend of creativity, quality, and equity!
