T08Job Description Summary
The City of Columbias Career Awareness Related Experience (CARE) Programs goal is for Columbias youth to be ready to enter the workforce and become productive, self-sufficient citizens. Since 1982, the CARE Program has provided comprehensive services for Columbias youth that include:
job readiness training
paid real-world hands-on work experience
money management training
The CARE Art Gallery, which began in 2000, serves as a visual arts work site for the CARE summer program. About 15 creative youth are employed (at minimum wage) as artists and gain paid real-world hands-on work experience. Each summer, Art Gallery trainees work 20 hours per week for eight weeks training with professional visiting artists, creating art, and developing their own professional skills.
Art Gallery trainees learn artistic techniques in a variety of media and create their own artwork. In this program, a strong emphasis is placed on mentoring the teens and helping them build the skills they need to be successful in life, in the workplace, and in the arts.
Each summer, teens work with six different professional artists, each of whom teach them an art medium that gives them the opportunity to develop their unique artistic skills. The teens then plan and prepare an end of the summer art gallery show where they exhibit their work.
In addition, each summer, Art Gallery trainees participate in many community outreach events.
