Building Healthy Communities through Art & Civic Action
Montalvo's Youth Action Coalition with GenerationEngage is made up of motivated high school students who are creative thinkers, feel passionate about the arts and contemporary social issues, and enjoy working with their peers from a diversity of backgrounds. Coalition members:
- Meet with local leaders as part of an investigative journey into the future of San José.
- Develop skills in digital photography, web design, videography & civic journalism.
- Collaborate with world-class artists, designers, civic leaders and other teens to engage in an arts & media-based exploration of healthy communities.
Part of Montalvo Arts Center’s commitment to the Next Generation, the Coalition was launched in 2007 to provide an avenue for teens to work with world-class artists in the creation of original programming exploring social concerns of our time.
The Youth Action Coalition meets every Tuesday, April 14 through June 6, at GenerationEngage, 60 S. Market Suite 1000, downtown San José, with two weekend intensives per month at Montalvo Arts Center and throughout Silicon Valley.
