About the Organization
AFH logo.png

Artists For Humanity (AFH) (Boston, Massachusetts) is a non-profit social enterprise, bridging economic, racial, and social divisions by providing under-resourced teens the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design. A powerhouse of art and design, AFH builds equity through creativity—offering teens a seat at the table with industry professionals where their opinions are valued, are treated as colleagues, and looked to as experts. Working collaboratively with a team of artist and designer mentors, teens learn as they earn a wage, use their intrinsic creativity as they master marketable skills and contribute to client projects, and forge a path toward post-secondary educational options and meaningful careers.
