Youth will work closely with the city, local artists, stakeholders and community partners as they learn about community organizing, art and nonprofit administration, civil service, and public speaking. Committee members will also attend a mandatory Spring Break intensive, which includes a trip to NYC to work closely with the Festival Featured Artist: BoogieRez.
