The Young Professionals Council of Raw Art Works launches on Wednesday, March 24th, 7 to 10pm at Cloud Place, 647 Boylston Street. It is an opportunity to meet with RAW’s inspiring young artists, view their amazing art work and films, meet other young professionals, and learn about the Young Professionals Council.
YPC Steering Committee member and area realtor Soraya Cacici says Raw Art Works is an organization that “Stole my heart…and continues to amaze me with the impact it has on the kids it serves – kids who might otherwise be on the street or in gangs, who are instead making beautiful art and then heading off to college - because through art therapy and lots of love, RAW has given them the desire to create and the confidence to succeed.”
The purpose of the Young Professionals Council (YPC) is to build awareness and raise funds in support of the mission of Raw Art Works. The Council is comprised of young, enthusiastic professionals who serve as RAW ambassadors to their business associates, social acquaintances, and prospective RAW friends. Each year over 1,200 youth aged 6-19 participate in RAW’s free programs in downtown Lynn’s Central Square. RAW offer groups in visual and expressive arts led by art therapists, an award-winning film school, leadership development, and teen employment opportunities. In Project Launch, mentors from the community guide RAW’s high school juniors and seniors through the college admissions and financial aid process. RAW graduates have gone on to RISD, Mass Art, Harvard, and USC.
