Think BIG Teen Mentorships
Roots + Wings Think BIG Teen Mentorships work to provide Asheville's youth with a safe, engaging space to create, while also connecting them with local artists as mentors for the summer and beyond. Artist mentorships help teens to create relationships outside their immediate communities, push their talents to the next level, and recognize the arts as a creative, viable career option.
This spring, we are raising funds to provide these powerful summer mentorships to at-risk youth in Asheville. Through think BIG mentorships, youth will have a safe space to build their artistic skills, create relationships with local artists, and expand upon a foundation for a successful future.
Funds raised will be used to buy materials, pay participating teaching artists a stipend for their time, and sponsor youth who would like to participate.
With your support, we could change the futures of youth living in poverty by providing them the resources to grow as artists and individuals in our community.
$1000 funds one mentorship.
