ArtCorps Mentoring is a year-long mentorship between community artists and youth at Whittier School, and a six week pilot mentorship at Manual High School. Both are under-resourced neighborhood schools in Five Points. Through a one-on-one mentorship, students explore the arts and design a social engagement project related to their lives and communities. In collaboration with their mentor, students act as socially engaged artists and learn to approach life with the inquiring mind of an artist.
