Raising Money for ArtWorks for Milwaukee
Heroes of the Week
Founded in 2001, ArtWorks develops teens’ life and career skills through paid, arts-based internships, with the mission to inspire them to create positive change in their own lives and community. More than 500 teen interns have been hired in upwards of 80 ArtWorks’ programs and the nonprofit is hoping to serve 100-plus teens by the end of 2014.
“The Staffing for a Cause Challenge will go a long way toward ArtWorks’ efforts to expand its programming,” says Murphy. “ArtWorks has had to turn away hundreds of students who apply for the available internships because of the organization’s limited capacity. As a result, ArtWorks is growing to help even more high school students overcome barriers to success.”
