Education Starts with Experience.

What We Do

Lead by Example
IMG_9069.heic

We believe leadership is best modeled through mentorship.

Studies show we learn and grow more when we are connected.  Work of Art carefully pairs each mentee with a trained mentor with similar interests.   

Inspire Others
Connect the World

Inspiration is our first priority!  During each Work of Art workshop or activity, the mentors and mentees are both inspired and inspiring through each other and our guests.  We take this practice into our every day lives.  Inspiring those we meet along the way.

We connect to our families, each other, our community and most importantly to ourselves through monthly thought- provoking activities and character development.

"We believe we are all works of art, shaped and molded by our personal experiences. Through character development, social-emotional empowerment, community service, post-secondary exploration and education each mentee will strive to achieve their full potential."

- Kai Butler, Founding Executive Director

Our Impact

Within the past four years 100% of our participant have graduated on time.

Each of our bi-weekly workshops focuses on social/emotional development, post-secondary plans or academic goals.

We complete one BIG service project within our community a quarter.

Each member of Work of Art successfully enrolled in post-secondary education, or was able to obtain employment.
