Founded in 1991, Artists For Humanity’s (AFH) mission is to provide under-resourced urban youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design. AFH began with an ambitious and unconventional idea that young people can provide, through their innate talent and vision, marketable creative services to the business community. In 26+ years, AFH has grown to become a leader in youth development and the largest onsite employer of Boston teens, with 250+ youth employed annually in paid apprenticeship in the visual arts and creative industries.
