JUMP StArts supports high quality arts education and artist(s)-in-residence programs for youth engaged in the juvenile justice system. Activities may take place in classroom, after-school, social services, or incarceration settings. The proposed project must be designed and developed in partnership between an arts organization and a juvenile justice/social services entity. The project should demonstrate significant planning and should reflect a collaborative relationship between the partnering organizations.

The program requires the partnership of an arts entity and a juvenile justice entity. Beginning in 2018, arts organizations may partner with State Division of Juvenile Justice facilities to apply for program funding. In all cases, the applicant must be the arts partner.

 

Program Goals

Provide opportunities for arts participation and arts education to incarcerated youth and youth on probation. Increase opportunities for California teaching artists and artists-in-residence in juvenile justice facilities, including juvenile halls, camps, and court and community schools.
