The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in collaboration with the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative (SYVPI), is soliciting proposals from arts, cultural and community organizations interested in providing programming that links arts learning and work experiences for Seattle youth ages 12 to 18 years old. Selected projects will serve between eight and 15 youth who have been recruited through the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative program.

Applicants may apply for projects that take place during the summer or during a flexible time-frame between July and the end of November. Projects with 90 hours of contact time may apply for funding up to $16,500. Projects with fewer than 90 hours of contact time may apply for a pro-rated lower amount.

The projects should strongly link arts learning with development of interpersonal, leadership and 21st century skills designed to boost academic, vocational and workplace success. Group project supervisors, SYVPI Neighborhood Network staff, and city staff will work together to ensure that participants learn both specific arts skills and the values of appropriate workplace behavior.
