What is Preservando el Arte?

The mission of Preservando el Arte is to help and motivate others with art so that it can change people in an integral way. The purpose is to implement workshops that target the needs of others, helping artists to rediscover themselves, while at the same time helping people to connect on a community level and to improve their unique talents. Additionally, we want to help young people as well as adults that have fallen victim to drugs, depression, and other mental illnesses integrate back into the community.

BECOME A LEADER

Volunteer Leader Description: There are two kinds of leadership positions: Executive Director and Program Director. A program only has one Executive Director, but multiple program directors. Leaders are generally responsible for overseeing recruitment, retention, and reflection with volunteers. They also coordinate service with community partners and ensure their program runs smoothly. Volunteer leaders may also share the responsibilities of volunteers as outlined in the Volunteer Description. For more information, visit our section called Be a Leader!

Volunteer Leader Commitment: In addition to volunteering, Volunteer leaders commit to a 1-hour monthly team meeting to discuss needs and make plans for the program.
