    Overview

    Artists For Humanity (AFH), a Boston-based organization, provides under-resourced teens the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design.

    At Artists For Humanity (AFH), teen artists and designers collaborate on innovative projects commissioned by clients—like:

    • Designing John Hancock’s signature 60’x60’ building wrap—for the Boston Marathon
    • Designing, fabricating and installing a 12' free-standing sculpture of the Olympic torch with integrated LED lighting for Liberty Mutual Insurance
    • Creating 45-second animated public service announcements to help a multi-lingual immigrant community understand their legal rights for Rosie’s Place
    • Designing and painting a 10’x45’ mural for a bike storage unit at the South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center for the Massachusetts Port Authority.

    AFH teens sit at the table with the CEOs of companies where their work is appreciated; their opinions are valued; they are treated as peers; and they are looked to as experts.
