Founded by John Lombardo, the mission of Artworks for Youth is to provide free after school visual art instruction, mentoring, and academic support to under-served students in South Africa.
ArtWorks for Youth offers free visual art instruction, academic support, and mentoring to under served students in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Our work began in New York City in May, 2000 and we have since worked with thousands of students through collaborations with schools and service organizations in New York City and South Africa. We learned of a school in South Africa through a collaboration with Frederick Douglass Academy II in Harlem. Our first trip to Africa was in March, 2003. We began traveling to South Africa three times annually. ArtWorks for Youth now works exclusively in South Africa. We are currently working in two schools: Sivuyiseni Intermediate, and Joe Slovo Primary, both in Port Elizabeth. We expanded to a year-round program in October 2009. We work with over 1,000 students a year.
