In light of the COVID-19 pandemic in our community, the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood is prepared to implement changes to our Summer Arts Aspire program to increase the safety practices for our participants, campers, and staff. We will continue to follow government guidelines and take any necessary precautions to achieve our goal of keeping everyone healthy and safe while providing a meaningful summer experience.

This college and career readiness program promotes strong leadership and job skills for youth and young adults ages 14-25. Arts Aspire activities enable participants to use what they know, expand their knowledge, and benefit from invaluable on-the-job leadership experiences. Students will learn directly from working professionals with opportunities to pursue internships or to receive mentoring. Community service hours and stipends are available.
