Create Now gives youth-in-need opportunities to find their voices through arts mentoring and education. 

We serve vulnerable children who have been abused, neglected, abandoned, orphaned, or homeless through programs in music, visual arts, literary arts, fashion, performing arts, digital media and cultural journeys. These “forgotten children” are tucked away in group homes, shelters, detention centers, rehab facilities, mental health clinics and special schools throughout Southern California. We also provide arts education in Title 1 schools for disadvantaged youth to prevent dropouts.

Over the past 20 years, Create Now has reached more than 37,000 youth.
