VIBE Arts engages young people living in marginalized, low-income Toronto neighbourhoods in high-quality and accessible arts education programs that are collaboratively developed with community and education partners. This funding will allow VIBE to create more structure around their mentorship program and recognize it as the second pillar of their work. They will work to build organizational capacity around their mentorship curriculum and to create more scheduled milestones, evaluation metrics, and a transformed program model, allowing staff to more easily support young artists.
This is an outstanding city.
