  • Mandate/Mission:
    In LOVE's programs we build community. Through strong, meaningful relationships we work to provide opportunities for young people to see their brilliance and skills, and we support them to use their strengths to build healthy, happy, successful lives. LOVE supports our youth to learn leadership and life skills while they create artworks that become powerful education tools. Our team of youth spokespeople use media arts as educational tools to teach community members about root causes, effects, and alternatives to violence. LOVE's youth also facilitate presentations, workshops, and processes to reach out purposefully to teach people in their communities about anti-violence, youth culture, social justice, and other issues that are important to them. Our youth educate thousands of youth, adults, and groups throughout our communities every year.
