Youth in Action, a social justice initiative of The Choice Program, provides youth with a platform to use art for community building, healing, violence prevention, and as a catalyst for social change.



The Choice Program is a non-profit organization that empowers youth and families who are in need of supportive services. Choice envisions communities where youth make choices that strengthen their lives, their families, and the world. The Choice Program serves communities through innovative, family-focused strategies that connect youth to opportunities to make positive choices.

Choice’s mission is accomplished using a community-based approach which identifies and links youth and families with social supports; develops high expectations; fosters caring relationships; and provides meaningful participation.
