Get to Know SCYAP!
SCYAP is our Sweet Goodness partner for August! They’re one of our neighbours in Mayfair and we wanted to share a little bit about them and the great work that they do!
Saskatoon Community Youth Arts Programming (SCYAP) is Saskatoon’s leading organization for youth employment engagement, free art studio access, art workshops and gallery space for emerging artists. They are a charitable and non-profit organization that helps youth at risk through art, cultural and employment programming, and provides inclusive art drop-in programs, art workshops and employment readiness training.
SCYAP was established in 2001 by Darrell B. Lechman, to offer street-level, youth focused solutions to crime, unemployment and youth homelessness by using our youth’s artistic interest and inclination as a tool to personal development and redirection towards a healthier, happier and more productive life.
They've since expanded their service model to include programming that is accessed by children and adults of all socio-economic standing.
One of SCYAP’s principal goals is to foster acceptance, integration and equality within the Saskatoon community by carrying out collaborative projects with different sectors, such as business, government, social and health services, and promoting inclusiveness and diverse cultural expression in classes, workshops and presentations.
SCYAP’s programs give youth the opportunity to make a connection with the wider community and earn the recognition and confidence that comes with it.
Their dream is to give young people hope and the tools to succeed.
SCYAP is offering a couple fun summer and fall activities for all ages! They have a free summer art drop in program that is available every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. They are also offering art lessons in the fall! Check out their website for more details!
