The application for the Work Readiness Arts Program will launch Tuesday, February 18, 2014.
The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in collaboration with the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative (SYVPI), is soliciting proposals from arts, cultural and community organizations interested in providing training programs that links arts learning and work experiences for Seattle youth. Selected projects will serve between eight and 15 youth who have been recruited through the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative (SYVPI) program.
Applicants may apply for projects that take place between July and the end of November. The projects should strongly link arts learning with development of interpersonal, leadership and 21st century skills designed to boost academic, vocational and workplace success. Group project supervisors, SYVPI Neighborhood Network staff, and city staff will work together to ensure that participants learn both specific arts skills and the values of appropriate workplace behavior.
