Youth Arts Program

Youth Arts Program
The arts program, located in the recently completed Zoelimax Foundation Community Center in Goyena, emphasizes social-emotional support and arts education, with a focus on cultural identity, creative thinking skills, entrepreneurship, youth counseling and capacity building. A youth oriented human capacity program focusing on gender equality, leadership and civic engagement is incorporated into the program to begin the work toward civic awareness, leadership and conflict resolution early.

In 2016 projects include jewelry design and fabrication, with an additional focus on entrepreneurship: finding ways and markets to sell the jewelry the students create. Piñata design and making is a regular activity while furniture design and fabrication using shipping pallets is a recent addition focusing on environmental themes of recycling and skills development in carpentry.
