Youth Spirit Artworks is an interfaith Job training program based in Berkeley California. Through Art, the program gives youth between the ages of 15-25 a chance to experience a non-violent work environment.The artwork they make is then sold and they earn 50% of the proceeds.
The indiegogo campaign, launched on the 9th of August, aims to raise $4,500 to purchase an artcart like the one pictured above. This will be fully customized to bear the logo of the organisation and also fitted with an umbrella and customised carrying area.
An art cart will enable the youth to sell in various locations which are otherwise hard to reach without a GREEN vehicle such as this. Please see the video below and hear what the youth have to say.You can see some of their work posted here.
Youth spirit artworks would really appreciate it if you could donate to this cost,any amount helps. More than this we ask you to share this campaign with as many people as you can!
