Youth In Action, 1999

In 1999 I taught middle-school students through Southern Exposure's Art In Education program and the San Francisco Conservation Corps' Youth In Action program. I worked with the students to create colorful, information-filled murals on the recycling bin in the Alice Griffith residential community, encouraging residents to take a closer look at the merits of recycling.

Youth in Action (YIA) , a San Francisco Conservation Corps program is a non-profit community-based organization located in the Mission District. YIA serves middle school students from the Bayview/Hunters Point, Potrero and Mission districts.

Southern Exposure's Artists in Education Program (AIE) works collaboratively with youth organizations and schools that have little access and limited resources for arts education. AIE stresses that art is a relevant forum to address issues of cultural identity, community awareness and the environment.

Southern Exposure , a non-profit artists' organization located in the Mission District, presents dynamic and creative exhibitions, performances, artists talks, panels, symposia and educational programs that are vital to he Bay Area's cultural health.
