Founded in 1991, Artists For Humanity's (AFH) mission is to bridge economic, racial, and social divisions by providing underserved urban youth with the keys to long-term economic and personal self-sufficiency through paid employment in art & design. Our mission is built on the philosophy that creativity is a powerful vehicle for social change, and that creative entrepreneurship is a productive and life-changing opportunity for young people and their communities. AFH utilizes four strategies to realize our mission by offering youth: (1) the respect and responsibility of paid employment that promotes self-esteem and workforce readiness; (2) a safe, meaningful place where teens develop important mentoring relationships; (3) educational enrichment that supports and encourages high school graduation and post-secondary education; and (4) an opportunity to be part of a creative community where they collaborate to produce custom client commissions and public exhibitions.

The Foundation's goal is to provide the ultimate environment for a child to become their best in all areas of their life, including academic, athletic, interpersonal skills, leadership, as a mentor, and someone willing to be mentored.

Their program is designed to go deeper into the subjects of life, excellence, and how to pursue happiness. In the end, our long-term goal is to help them become professionals in life, to find peace of mind, so they can share this wisdom with their families, friends, and communities as leaders and examples of extraordinary living and happiness.
