There are approximately 75,000 kids in the Los Angeles area between the ages of 16 – 24 who are out of school and out of work. For reasons often outside their control, these young people have dropped out of school and, due to lack of education, are unable to find a living wage job. Accelerate wants to help them change their story by using arts to re-engage these students in their education. The arts can be used as a powerful tool to keep youth in school, obtain their high school diploma and move on to become successful members of society. Through our partnerships with local charter schools, we offer high school elective credit art classes to help get them back on track towards their diploma.
