What is Creative Connections?


Creative Connections is an expressive art program for teens attending Day Skills Intervention (DSI), a program within the juvenile justice system. The objective of this program is to foster meaningful, lasting connections through art that will propel DSI students in a positive, pro-social direction.

 

The program is held at the Neighborhood Art Center-- a local art studio-- in the Provo Towne Center Mall. You do NOT need to be an artist to participate. Art classes are held every Monday, 10:00-11:30AM!

I LOVE Creative Connections! I am changed as I choose to connect with and love teenagers who often have it much harder than me. They are my heroes. I love attending the program each Monday and feel I can really making a difference there. I also love the volunteers who go and feel that we foster connections that allow all participants to see and be their best selves. I would recommend every BYU student volunteer with Creative Connections.
