The Emerging Artists-in-Residence Program is a six-month residency for NYC artistic youth. The program provides residents with a rigorous schedule of coursework, project, creation, networking, paid internships, showcase opportunities and career-counseling. Residents go on to use their creative talents and professionalism to become art strudents, performers, and above all, responsible young adults with a clear vision and a plan for their personal success.

I want to launch an outreach program for kids and young adults who are in danger, but I have no idea where to begin. I surrounded myself with the wrong people and made the wrong mistakes as a teen and young adult, which led to my eventual incarceration.
