Our Mission

Create Now empowers youth through arts education and mentoring. We've reached 49,000 young people ages 3-24 (transition-aged youth), especially those who are challenged by poverty, abuse, neglect, incarceration, domestic violence or left orphaned and homeless. These are the "forgotten children" who have fallen through the cracks. Create Now produces a variety of workshops in music, dance, writing, photography, fashion, photography... ALL the arts.

What We Do

(1) VOLUNTEERS are matched with kids at the 100+ youth agencies in our network located all over Los Angeles, Orange County and adjacent areas. We organize workshops based on your schedule, even one-time events. Create Now staff provides training, arts supplies and culmination events where each youth receives gifts as lasting souvenirs.

During Covid-19, all classes are held through Zoom, so location doesn't matter. However, we prefer arts volunteers who live in the Greater Los Angeles area because there may be opportunities to meet your students in person when the pandemic is behind us.

(2) SCHOOL CLASSES are taught to disadvantaged kids in poverty-stricken neighborhoods where students learn guitar, visual arts, writing and STEAM
projects from professional teaching artists whom Create Now hires.

(3) CULTURAL JOURNEYS - Each year, Create Now brings
thousands of families to concerts at the Hollywood Bowl and Disney Hall, plus plays, Cirque du Soleil and more fun events through our Cultural Journeys program.

(4) Our CAP initiative (Community Arts Projects) helps to cap violence in low-income neighborhoods by producing arts festivals, talent shows and murals through sponsored events that can reach large numbers of families.
