Free Crafts for Mental Health youth program returns for 2023

The program, which begins July 21, is put on by the Afro Women and Youth Foundation

The Afro Women and Youth Foundation will be hosting Crafts for Mental Health (CMH) 2023, beginning Friday, July 21 and running every Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm until August 5.

The Crafts for Mental Health Program is a free program designed for youth, ages 10 through 16 to come together in a safe space to strengthen their mental health and wellness through arts-based activities. Participants will have opportunities to learn new skills in beading, sewing, hair care, and makeup from local artists and engage in mental health and youth worker’s rights workshops.

Arts supplies will be provided, and refreshments will be served daily.

On August 5, during the final session, there will be a Youth Art Show. Each participant will display their creative arts and share their experience in the program. Parents and community friends are invited to attend the Youth Art Show.

There are only 20 spots available for each session, so youth are encouraged to register early here for an opportunity to learn how to improve mental health, understand your rights at work, and gain new artistic skills.
