New funding opportunity: Work-Readiness Arts Program

The Work-Readiness Arts Program, in collaboration with the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative (SYVPI), is accepting proposals from arts, cultural and community organizations interested in providing out-of-school programming that links arts learning and work experiences for Seattle youth ages 14 to 18. Selected projects will serve between eight and 15 youth who have been recruited through the SYVPI program and should strongly link arts learning with development of interpersonal, leadership and 21st century skills to boost academic, vocational and workplace success.

All applicants are required to attend a mandatory information session to learn more about this new program and what makes a strong application and project. Workshop dates and times are TBD. Contact Jenny Crooks to be notified when the details are confirmed.

Proposals are due Friday, June 28.
