donate snacks

...

Having a snack ready for the students when they arrive after school helps to refresh their creative minds before we jump into our programming. Snacks are dropped off by volunteers by 4pm daily.

...

teach a class

...

We have 3-5 different arts classes taking place at our building daily from 5:30-6:30 and are always looking to expand what we offer to connect talented teachers with students looking to find their passion in the arts.

...

lead a workshop

...

Help us bring art to the wider Clarksdale community by leading a workshop for the public and sharing your passion for the arts.

...

become a mentor

...

Mentors have had a huge impact on our students. Each student in our program is paired with a caring adult in the community to provide additional encouragement and support as they navigate through young adulthood.

...

tutor hs/ms

...

Tutoring takes place from 4:45-5:15 every Wednesday and Thursday. Volunteer tutors allow us to work with small groups of students and address individual needs.

...

help at an event

...

We are always in need of extra hands and smiles at our events! Whether it be helping to make food, set up equipment, or encourage students as they prepare; the extra volunteers at all of our events are what have made them go smoothly and joyfully. Whatever you have to offer will be a blessing!
