Urban Youth Impact
Urban Youth Impact is a center in downtown West Palm Beach that offers an after school and summer educational program for inner city youth in West Palm Beach. The Armory Art Center provided a beneficial partnership for Urban Youth Impact to help to continue exploring the student’s gifts and talents through self expression in the visual arts.
Urban Youth Impact has observed through pre and post surveys that some students utilize these classes for individualism and creative outlets. Having had the opportunity to participate in a variety of offerings through the Armory has allowed Urban Youth Impact to learn about abilities they or their families were not even aware existed inside of them. Youth participants have learned fine art vocabulary and terms while becoming more self-aware and confident in their abilities to refine their artistic skills.
