ASI provides a meaningful educational experience for both volunteers and students over the course of 5 weeks. We ask volunteers to volunteer for 6 hours a week for 5 weeks.

At the end of our program, volunteers and interns will help put on a student art show and build their own teaching portfolios while gathering the rewarding feedback from parents and youth on the pride, achievement and self-expression that community art making and sharing instills.
Mutual Respect—“ASI believes that all volunteers should be treated with courtesy and respect so everyone can feel safe enough to be creative and self expressive.”
Commitment—“ASI volunteers are dedicated to fulfilling our shared vision while embracing the challenges of the future to assure youth will have access to the Arts.”
Teamwork—“ASI believes that a community working together toward a common goal can achieve better results than individuals can achieve independently.
