There are multiple ways in addition to donating that you can join us in supporting youth voices, and really show up for our future leaders:
Attend our Virtual First Friday youth performances on Instagram live! Every first Friday of the month at 6pm (MST) we gather young people who are willing to share their poems. For 12 years the youth performed in the community. Now we are asking for the online community to show your appreciation for their courage and creativity! Find our handle [@afaphoenix] on Instagram and join us!
YOU TOO can participate in our social media writing prompts every Tuesday and Thursday on Facebook. We promote breaking down the walls that separate us, and want the youth to know we’re willing to share what we’ve written, too! The more you share, the more welcoming it is for others to share. And please sign up for our newsletter or text ARTFROMASHES [all caps, no spaces] to 22828.
Apply to be a volunteer! Tell your friends and family about us! The truth is, folks are more inclined to give financially to an organization their loved ones believe in.
*Most importantly, tell the young people in your life about AfA and encourage them to try some of our free programming by contacting our Director of Programs.
