Summary

When the priority is food and shelter, cultivating a child's creativity takes a back seat. Additionally, when kids of color don’t have the support or confidence to explore their creativity, they often drop off. Launched by three Austin nonprofits–Latinitas, E4 Youth and Creative Action–Connect Creative Kids is looking to change that by consciously breaking away from silos to share evaluative tools and best practices and create a referral network to keep the opportunity youth they serve on a pathway toward a career. CCK will also work to address the barriers into the creative class faced by many youth of color and make the CCK model replicable to all opportunity youth-serving nonprofits.
