Creative Empowerment for Youth

Creative Empowerment for Youth is a volunteer group that mentors elementary school students with underfunded art programs. CEY has weekly sessions after school featuring an activity to promote creativity, self-expression, and foster positive relationships between students and their college mentors. Currently, we have weekly sessions with a group of 2nd – 5th grade students at Linden Elementary. We are hoping to expand to other schools as CEY grows!

If you are interested in art and enjoy working with youth, please apply using the form below!

Feel free to reach out to our Student Coordinator with questions at!
