would like to introduce the new staff on the block here at Free Arts at Parsons Place. We did an onboarding process to expand our Operations and Programs Departments. We continue to build resilience by growing from 18 employees at the start of Fiscal Year 2022 now to a current staff of 23!
Free Arts made a positive impact locally in our recent partnership with Miss Scottsdale Outstanding Teen. Sophia Lin reached out to Free Arts because she related to our mission: “Transforming children’s trauma to resilience through the arts.”
For the past two months, Free Arts has opened the doors to Parsons Place to renew our volunteer mentor orientations and trainings. We are excited to have future volunteer mentors in the building learning about the resilience building arts programming that Free Arts provides to the children we serve.
This year Free Arts has teamed up with Phonetic Spit, a local non-profit whose mission is to create brave spaces that help young people find, develop, and publicly present their voices as agents of social change.
