Our arts program provides youth with tools for self-expression in new media, fine arts and performing arts. By connecting with established artists, academic institutions and community partners, we offer youth the opportunity for creativity and collaboration.
Located at 219 Augusta Avenue, the Youth Arcade Studio is made possible thanks to the generous support of donors and their belief that young people should have a space to create, explore and grow.
Directed by our youth peer leaders, the Studio will house several of our creative endeavours:
Kensington Art Academy
Fine art instruction with a focus on fundamental skills
+Vibes Music Program
Instrumental lessons, song writing, and performance
Cyber Self Defense portal designed by and for young women
