Youth Interns: participants in the Young Queens on the Rise program of Mission Girls
The Community Arts Internship Program (CAIP) offers young artists and activists the opportunity to exercise leadership skills and engage with their community by exploring relevant social and personal issues through the visual arts. CAIP collaborates with the Young Queens on the Rise, a gender-specific support group for girls, organized in conjunction with Mission Girls, a program of Mission Neighborhood Centers. CAIP is designed to provide youth interns with valuable time to explore art making, arts organizing, activism, and community engagement. The weekly workshops with a Teaching Artist will guide the Young Queens through learning new art processes and implementing a community-based arts project. The final exhibition will be presented to the public at Southern Exposure in December 2022.
