Coming soon! AFH's Collaboration Center

We've got big plans!

At Artists For Humanity, we employ 400+ teens in Boston and New York City in the creative industries annually. Embedded in our unique youth workforce development model are real work experiences.

My Anh Phan AFH Teen Artist quote

This summer, with your help, we’ll enhance these experiences by building a dedicated conference room, known as the AFH Collaboration Center.

Not only will we use this space to collaborate with colleagues, clients, and community members to complete projects, we’ll also:

  • expose our teens to evolving workplace technology and equipment

  • earn revenue as a rentable green room and staging space for our event rental business, and

  • offer community members and non-profit partners use of the conference room free of charge.

We need $63,000 to make this a reality, unlock a matching grant, and continue to offer a state-of-the-art facility for our next generation of creative leaders. Your support will also fund additional building needs critical to maintaining the EpiCenter as a hub of creativity and collaboration in Boston.
