Creative Entrepreneurs Club Request for Proposals!

Through a generous grant from the International Youth Foundation and Starbucks Shared Planet Youth Action, SA is piloting the Creative Entrepreneurs Club (CEC), designed both to unleash teenagers’ artistic potential and to benefit local nonprofits through real-world creative services and products.

The CEC announces a Request for Proposals to offer pro bono design services to benefit small, start-up, and grassroots nonprofit organizations located in Brooklyn, NY, or with programs based in Brooklyn, NY.

The CEC is an opportunity for teen designers with experience in illustration, graphic design, photography, video, animation, and branding to use arts and business skills to benefit their community through donating their creative services. 1-2 grantees will be selected to receive a creative project free of charge each school semester while CEC student leaders earn stipends for their work.

The new CEC Spring 2010 Application is now available. Click here for more details.
