How your dollars help

Each year SKETCH provides more than 6000 healthy meals, and runs over 100 arts and skill-building programs. Since its inception in 1996, SKETCH has engaged and empowered over 13,000 homeless or marginalized youth through the arts.

We believe that young people navigating poverty, living homeless and on the margins have unique creativity and perspectives. Their contributions are needed to build an inclusive and vibrant, culture and community.

When you support SKETCH, you create possibilities for young people on the margins to access creativity and succeed.
